When you paint from photographs you can always revisit the summer! I have painted this pose in a 30 x 40 but handled it completely differently. First it was a full body pose and I had a very dark prussian blue, indian yellow and alizarin background.
This one is lighter. I am loving the 24 24 format and the symmetry that it provides. I feel like it makes the eye travel more quickly covering all corners of the canvas. I painted it first in raw umber with a line in drawing, then completely painted it with ivory black and white and a touch of green. After drying I added the color. I think I will revisit the flesh after this drying.
