This painting followed the same assignment as the previous painting — focusing on exaggerating the perspective.
This angle was a little harder because I had more of a straight on full length body shot. But since her knees were pulled up, creating some leg foreshortening, I chose to exaggerate that. Also, the model has a beautiful curvy body, which is really fun to paint. So I used that to my advantage and WAY overexaggerated the curves of her hips.
I think this painting turned out pretty successfully. I usually work with a 1/4” round brush (per the request of our teacher), but since this painting had some large areas, I decided to paint with a my large gesso brush which covered more area more quickly and gave the painting interesting texture and brushstrokes.
ps. Sorry for the glare on the left side of the painting…
