Nude in Progress

This painting has been in progress for about 2 months now; every stage could have been a completed painting! Something about the pose and mood I found a very strong image, and it was just beautiful even on the block-out stage. I am not sureĀ if I am finished, but I feel I am close and I am being patient and taking my time and giving every stroke of paint much consideration. I did many sketches in pencil from the models to have the information I needed to make the composition you see here; lots of editing was required. I just felt like too much detail would take away from the feeling of the painting… You can see where the paint dripped on my initial block in the hair, and I plan to leave it as reminder of the spontaneity I hope to capture in this delicately rendered work…
