Mostly monochromatic woman

This oil sketch is mostly burnt sienna & white with a little Ultramarine Blue thrown in for the darker areas. Sketching with paint is a lot like regular sketching with dry materials...there is never a need to feel overly invested in the results...it's all just for fun and/or practice.

Laissez aller son inspiration, sans se poser de question...tout comme le regard et l'attitude de votre personnage... Bises

I've noticed over the past year or so that you're really skilled at creating a pensive mood - one that draws in the viewer. I love that about your work because it makes me want to invest time looking at it and thinking about it. Isn't that what it's all about?

I cannot describe the feeling I get from her, but it is a good feeling.
She seems to be an acual person that wants to move about!
You really are a creative Celeste, I enjoy this very much.

Sometimes I feel more pressure about painting & I forget that it is just another form of sketching/drawing. Thanks for the reminder!

She's got style! Great hat!!

I just bought some big tubes of Raw Umber and white to work on more monochromatic studies. Not as easy as it sounds when you're a color junkie like me!
