An Original Oil Painting on Canvas Board

For many years I've practised the regular discipline of life drawing to sharpen my skills at drawing from observation. 

Using a limited palette of Lead White, Yellow Ochre, Light Red and Lamp Black on a tinted board I use Sight Size to ensure an accurate rendering of form, tone and colour. 

Drawing with the brush rather than outlining in pencil creates brush marks that are fresh and expressive. 

This can be seen throughout this painting, particularly the models arms and legs. There was also a darker background than usual which helped to create strong form and shapes.
