Session #234, Work #230

It has been a very long time since I took up a brush full of oil paint and attempt to render the figure accurately, and the task tonight was not made easier by time. I only had about an hour and a half to paint this wonderful pose. I was grateful to have warmed up with an hour of sketches before the painting even though most turned out stunted and grotesque looking. Again I will say that I need to work on my gesture drawings more, I should hit one of the many session around Seattle that have short poses.
