Ashley is a beautiful young woman, but in just two and a half hours' painting time, this burnt umber and yellow ochre underpainting was as far as I could get. I really like the method I used of wiping out the lights from the toned canvas. This was a good likeness and the model really liked it. Her boyfriend surprised her with it for Valentine's Day!
I am still having a difficult time painting at the easel, such as I did here, but I am trying. I hope to be getting more art posted in the not too distant future.
