Doesn't this model remind you of a pixie or a waif? Or, maybe a modern dancer? This is one of four quickly painted in the same session. They make me smile and happy when I see them. This small oil painting is done on heavy watercolor paper that has been covered with three coats of gesso. The advantages of this treatment is that the painting can be framed as you would an oil painting or a watercolor or drawing--your choice and taste. I like to frame them on top of mat board with glass over the top so that the deckled edges are visible.
This is one of my favorite ways of working. It captures a freshness and spontaneity that is harder to achieve in longer studio settings.
I have priced this with the idea of making it affordable to purchase more than one for a grouping. This is the first time I have offered these for sale. BUY THREE OF THIS SERIES AND GET THE FOURTH ONE FREE!!!
