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.
