Reclined

WOW! That's all I have to say after all the comments my piece received yesterday! Thank you so much. Such encouragement in this blogging community. Our Monday night figure session was cancelled again this week...I found out second hand, because I didn't go this week. Hopefully there's next week...I take some different paints with me to this class and give myself permission to experiment and try some new combinations...like here, the red and green. If you leave them alone and don't "scrub" and "fuss" too much, the pigments will get along fairly well on the paper!

WOW, this figure painting is wonderful, Annelein!! I love the rich color choices, the light and shadows, the composition. Hmm, that's about all of it, isn't it?! Great job!

Astoundingly striking and beautiful! And yes, only if we could just let go....

You make it look so easy. Inspired by your figures, I tried to turn my figure drawings into paintings....it was a great failure! Yours are just stunning!!!

One sees a pose like this quite often, but yours is abolutely outstanding. The bright colours push the figure forward and give it the 3rd dimension.

Un grand bravo pour ceci et pour l'ensemble de vos travaux que je trouve superbes, tant pour l'assurance dans les rapports de couleurs que dans l'équilibre des formes, j'aime beaucoup !
