This is a painting I did I one of the long open studios at the Palette and Chisel. After about a year of attending quick sketch studios at the P&C, I finally worked up my courage to try working in a long studio. There are some really good painters, and I wasn’t sure I know what to do for 5 hours. I was really happy to get a picture done and I feel like some of the things I’ve been studying finally came together, like edges, warm/cool contrast, and color. Of course, I overworked things. I really had fu with the folds in her dress and the background.
