Natasha Waking Drawing Nude Oil on Canvas by John EntrekinHere are  the continued stages as well as the final of the painting I call, "Natasha Waking" 

I will start with the 3rd  , 4th and 5th stages (earlier stages are described in earlier blog posts) of the painting and then the final.  The biggest struggle here was the skin tones and getting that feeling of morning but still having some drama in the values or shading and a contrast with the background.

When I reached this point I knew where I needed to go and was able to finish the painting. Below is the image of the final painting. You can see a larger version of the completed painting here, "Natasha Waking"

This is just go beautiful. I think every woman would like to be seen as you see her. I love to read about how it is painted. I learned a lot, thanks,

Lovely. I see the painting with exactly the mood you have described (the early morning light and that just waking up stillness).
