Standing Pose, Nude with Kimono
Today's daily oil painting was done during a 2 hour pose. I had a huge canvas, 24" by 48" and I wish it was even bigger. I started with thin washes and built up thicker paint around the portrait. Though 2 hours is a long time, I could have used another 3 or 4 hours. I include a photo close up of the face. Full figure pose = combining figure painting with a portrait on top.
