"Direct Painting" or "Alla prima painting" suits my personality. I prefer to paint all-at-once and in one sitting. Sometimes, however, it is clear that a painting requires a 2nd pass. Such is the case here! I just had to walk away from this ...consider it a good start and vow to return to it tomorrow. We will see if I really do that, because I have been known to lose interest in phase two. In any case, it is a great pose for practice.
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Actrice de théâtre, oil on 18x24 canvas panel
