One model 4 poses

Earlier this year we started a series of painting where our model Katalin would strike multiple poses with the intention that they would go into one composition. Sound hard? You bet.

Painted in the colors I see. Neutral mixes of bi-colors to achieve chromatic greys This was quite an achievement for me in that I did this in 10 to 12 hours.

This is the finish.
