Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches. This painting came from simply liking the pose my model took one day. I took photos of her, then did some quick pencil sketches. Later I played around with different setting for the pose. I ended up with this mostly because of the many different juxtaposed shapes that gave some sense of outdoor setting. Well, at least it does to me. Her expression is meant to be a little hard to define.
