Completed Figure Study

Hired the model back for one more session to complete the painting, making it a total of six 4 hour sessions. I am going to use this as a study for a larger painting that will put the figure in an environment and hope to post some progress shots on that project soon!

Slightly Less Tiny Figure Painting

Here are some progress shots of a figure painting I am working on now from the preliminary drawing to the oil transfer and form painting. Given the short duration I will have with the model (2o hours total), I omitted some of the preparatory stages I usually like to precede my finished paintings and just went straight for the finish. This one is small, 15" x 16", but I am thinking of using it as a study for a much larger painting. So far we have had three, four hour sessions.
