Profile 8x16 oil on hardboard

 I stained the board pink then laid down the medium darks added middle values and even though it is the first stage I throw some highlights for reference later ,about 10 hour drying time followed by a reddish brown glaze wiping away with a piece of bath towel then I reestablish the darks and lights ...a little detail here and there , DONE. Here are a couple photos of the painting before and during glazing .  SOLD

Using the long format was a wonderful idea with her pose, David. One could imagine her thinking all sorts of things.
