18 x 24 inch
oil on stretched canvas
After the first session, the painting looked like a disaster. The figure looked like a pale, lanky wiggly form in a middle of dark green. I really considered covering the whole canvas with paint and starting a new one.
But Charles came and pointed out how it has simplified blocks of color, thickly laid paint, interesting splashes of color, and good design. He sure has a talent for seeing something positive in everyone! Well, that gave me a new encouragement to keep working on the piece.
The result is, I'm glad I stuck with it.
One kind lady in the class told me that she looks like she's lying next to the ocean looking towards horizon.
