Sandra's room

This is a work on canvas. I have used acrylic to cover the canvas and provide the setting and then the whole thing is in pastel.


This piece I have produced for my art class to submit as year 1 final piece. We have been studying a life model and although this character is a lot younger than the lady who was our model, I like to think this is how she looked as a young woman.

I am quite pleased with it...any comments would be appreciated.

Table

Hi Linda,

I like the warm glow of the painting and think you have captured the roundness and softness of the female shape.

I know that the viewer is looking down on the table but I feel that the front of the table is dipping down and that the elipse is slightly out.

Regards,

Dorothy

Hi Linda,

I like the red colours. Beatiful atmosphere.
Good idea use acrylic for the background.

I think it's good to change things, as you said, this character is younger than the model. That's the artist's freedom.

Very well done.

Hi Linda:
I have never attempted a nude figure so don't feel qualified to comment in that area. However I love the warm colors and the cosy glow that envelopes the room from the lamp.
Mmm....thinking....now if you could only make me look like that:o)
