40 minute pose done from a live model. This was awarded Third Place in the Society of All Artists (S.A.A.) May 2016 Life Drawing challenge.
Here are the judge's comments:
This is the third choice, I have to say Shari is an excellent painter and this being painted in oils in that time is just so impressive, from life as well, I love every thing about it, the excellent proportioning, the light and shade, the application of the paint is so buttery and beautifully applied, in parts reminding me of studies done by the late Lucian Freud. Beautiful work.
