This is a 5x7 inch original oil painting. This is a
deliberately unfinished study.
originally planned to do a finished painting including the full figure and
background. But when I got to this stage I liked it just as it is and decided
to stop there.
One thing I
like about saving a painting at this point is that it better shows the hand of
the artist; the painting process itself. I thought that may be interesting to
other artists as well.
I also thought
it also might of interest to see the starting point of this study (below). Hope
you like it.
