Standing Figure – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel

This winter I am taking a figure painting class with Danni Dawson. She is a very talented and accomplished artist, here a link to her website: This figure is a small painting I completed on my own in response to the class. I typically focus on still life paintings, though I am interested in the human figure and thought this class would be good for expanding my skills.

I like the warm tones of the lady’s skin and the cool neutral background. It is a quite, but still active pose; I think that is why I like it so much.
