Sketchbook #23


Pencil on paper, 21x30 cm
I'm working on my largest oil painting so far (73x95 cm), based on this theme. I noticed that I'll need a larger studio easel if I paint any bigger.

The way you have captured the details of the back muscles and the folds of the skirt is outstanding.

I just love the smooth transitions you manage to achieve with charcoal. Outstanding job, can't wait to take a peak at the painting :-)
