Under-painting of Jasmine

Jasmine 12" x 24" oil on canvas

This is a 3 hour under-painting from life done today. What a beautiful model and a joy to paint. I'll finish it next week - but right now I am darn happy with this start!

  1. really great start.. really nice painting today, Nathalie. Your work is really progressing and evolving. You've been working hard and producing a lot of really good work. Way to go! So glad you're happy and seeing that too. :) Note: you were very inspired and focused today. You grabbed your canvas and knew where you were going with this one from the start. Everything pulled together. The likeness, the loose quality of drips and texture, the dimensions of the canvas - all worked together very nicely. This was less plotted, but still planned - you had an idea and stuck with it. You were in your element, inspired, driven. Very cool.
