All About the Leggings 10x8 oil

Yesterday was a fun day back painting the model. I have been working on the figure for the past several weeks in charcoal. Working in paint I was still able to apply the basic understructure and build. Normally I would crop the composition, but I really wanted to get the figure and the enviroment on the canvas. While not emotionally stimulating, I acomplished getting all the information down and with relationship to her enviroment. So I am happy.

Wow....I want to paint a model one day....I'm so envious! Love your result. Leggings were such a fad in the 70's. Of course you were too young to remember that. ;o)

Very great job!!
Trying to get the entire figure into an 8 x 10 really makes this fine figure painting even more impressive.

Nicely done! How did your home sale go? I agree with you, painting from life is the way to go. Love our sunflowers.
