Fauve study of woman

Oil paint, knife painting
12 x 16 inches

Our lovely model is really a very sweet young woman but I approached this one with a wild, fearless alla prima Fauve approach.

These quick studies in oil are done in 3 hour sessions. As with my life drawings, when the clock rings I am done and never go back in to work farther on them. That is the challenge and point of life sessions except when working with a study for a longer studio work but my studio work comes from some other place than our life painting group.
