Last Session


Here is where it ended. I find oil to be quite difficult to manipulate but we start a new pose tonight so I'm keen to see if I've learned anything. Having a good time with it.
Really, I would need to do about 20 more like this to get a real feel for the medium.

I agree with whatever Fraser is going to say.

Painting looks great Stephen.

"I would need to do about 20 more like this to get a real feel for the medium." That is the most inspirational thing I've heard in a long time! 20 pieces at approx. 8 hours each. Heck! If I invested 160 hours in my art I'm sure I'd see progress.
Thanks!

I reckon the lady would get pretty bored standing there for that long.
Hans agrees.
Fantastic work Steve, I love the way it came to life differently to your previous step by steps- it's like you breathed life into that skin, the eyes, the whole thing.

She got prettier and more idealized as you went along.
