Marissa - study for a larger piece
10 x 10
Oil on board
I was fortunate to be able to take many, many photos of my daughter in law, Marissa, for an upcoming series. I want to focus on figures, anatomy, and facial features and she was kind enough to pose in different outfits and lots of interesting poses. I will paint her from life and use photos as references when she is not available.
This particular painting is a small study…I want to paint a larger piece and wanted to make sure I like the pose, composition and background. I will probably make the figure smaller on the canvas with more room over her head…but I am pleased with the placement of her features. I will probably finish this up tomorrow and then do one or two more studies before I begin on the larger pieces.
