This is Kristina done in oil on a 12″ x 12″ panel painted from life: a three hour session with breaks for the model every 20 minutes. If you’re interested in purchasing this painting it is $200 unframed. Every time I paint a figure I realize how much I absolutely love painting people. Well, I just love to paint and I haven’t been doing much of that at all lately.
After this I’m going to make a concentrated effort to paint more people from life. I will find them somewhere! It would be good to paint a figure from life twice a week instead of once a week, which is a great goal but might not be realistic until after the holidays.
