The Pose 20x16 oil

I thought this was a sharp look for our model. Whenever she models for us she comes with lots of wardrobe options which prompt lots of discussion. This was a different look then usual. It felt like a photo shoot for a fashion magazine.
It was fun adding in the lights and wires. I took time to work on brushwork and color mixing. The models clothing color being black and white made working color into the background lots of fun.

Looks like you are ready for Project Runway! I love the colors and the darker feel in this painting is wonderful.
