Oil - 9" x 12"
This painting was done from life in one sitting. After about a half hour, my daughter was decidedly finished with posing so I had to complete the painting without a model. It was not my goal to attain a likeness, firstly, because she did not want me to, and secondly, the "I just woke up and do not really want to model for you" look was not a viable option. In the end, it all worked out and I was quite pleased with the result. The painting was done using only two brushes. I am always looking for a different way to create my art and simplicity is continually paramount.
