"JA" In Orange




“JA” In Orange

Today being Friday had me painting with the Independent Painters Group. “JA” was the model this morning. She will be in the same pose next Friday too.
I have to admit this is more of a drawing than a painting. I sort of got carried away with the pastel pencil layout sketch, before introducing color.
18”x 24” pastel/watercolor on 140# cold press

    1. Oh how wonderful.
      The gorgeous colours...that beautiful face...and those hands!
      There is something about her hands that has caught...no, riveted my attention!
      You have captured a tenderness there that evokes such powerful emotion. I see her in my mind's eye as a healer, with beautiful rainbow light running through her hands.
      Anthony...please tell me I'm not taking complete leave of my senses!! Haha:D

    2. Who am I to judge sanity? The same sort of conversations flow through my thoughts too.
