Emily Bright and Shiny


Oil on panel.    This portrait of a beautiful and talented dancer Emily was done as she posed for my art group for the 2nd session.  I painted a full body pose during the first session.  This was done on a store-bought panel which turned out to be exceptionally slick and hard to paint on with any kind of even finish.  I had to keep working on this one at length, at home after it dried, to bring it to a reasonable finish.
