Jen in red 12"x9" oil

It certainly has been a while since my last post.   I feel like I am on vacation except for the fact that I have been working, but not on daily paintings.   I have been sewing bags, clothing and I made a fabulous hat with beading.   But I digress.   I painted this last Friday but forgot to post until now!   That should tell you where my head has been... in the dark under a hat!   Jen is a new model for our Friday "Go Figure" group and she came with her own outfit!   Which we loved!   I concentrated on painting in the focus area with the outlying areas just hinted at.  I am happy with this one.

Great job! Love the face and the hand in the light.

Great drama. Love the angularity of her dress, and the variety in shadow edges. Nice.

That is stunning!! Love the strong focal point, the dress looks effortless... The "hinting" part is so well done too, adds just the right amount of interest and mystery.
