2 oil sketches from life painting session

This model was so pretty.... I didn't even come close to doing her justice. I liked the back lit situation... and I had a good start but in the end it all wound up looking too warm and I lost it. Well, with any luck I will get to paint her again some day ....and get a second chance.

Thanks for the invitation, redchair, but I don't pay to display my art. I wonder how you will fare when online "challenges" like Karin Jurik's and Wet Canvas ("all media arts events") don't charge anything. Well...Good Luck in your endeavor!
