Day 19

Ashley at the Cafe, 11" x 14" on canvas board $195

At Studio 30 last Friday, I painted two studies of the model, Ashley, the first one a portrait in profile.  Then I attempted a larger view including the table and objects on it:  coffee cup and saucer, sugar bowl, vase with rose, etc.  All the elements did not add up to a complete whole.  I worked on the painting for awhile and realized that it could not be "fixed", it's a wipe-out!  Luckily I had photos from different angles and decided to do another painting from a frontal view revealing more of her face, gesture, less distracting detail.

Billie, a slight modification in the background from the previous post, 9" x 12" $135
