Arches CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

this was done from photos of siena taken before the italian trip. i was trying her out in various combinations of clothing and in different pose stations around the studio.

i have gotten a lot of mileage out of that couch. it's a nice simple form, the dark leather contrasts nicely with human skin, it defines a strong perspective reference, and it is fun to paint the luster and reflections.

i like the pose and the colors of the painting. the drawing and painting partner without one overcoming the other. the pose is restful but the setting is dynamic.
