Susan in Paint 8x6 oil

I did this one after the one below.  At this point in the day I was really mixing different colors and just enjoying the process.  I was trying out a new palette of colors that Kim English uses.  Actually not exactly, but close.  I have so many colors I have worked with over the years.  I am always glad to try a new palette because chances are I have the color or something close in my box.  I typically work with 5 or 6 colors tops.  Today I had 14, I think.  I can't put that much paint out and not play with it.

These 2 figures are very cool, and you're right, they're so painterly. Loose, big brush marks, wonderful.

This one has wonderful loose brushwork in it! I like it more than the other because I think the composition is more interesting, the colors are more playful and it just looks more relaxed. Beautiful!

Yes! The technique on this and the prior are delicious. The pose on this one is lush. Delicious and lush. Whoa!
