The Reader: a Portrait of Morgan©2010 C.L. Burgess oil on canvas 20 x 16
This was done live last night, another 3 hour sitting. I am going back in today to darken the background since I worked on her head and face for most of the time given. May tweak a few parts, but overall I got what I wanted:a soft, quiet moment portrayed. My palette this time leaned toward more of a Zorn influence rather than my usual Shanks inspired color.
The model was very pleased and thought I really did capture her. That was very good news to me.
