Bangs Standing

Bangs Standing, 7"X5" Oil on gesso board.
I've painted so many of these small paintings, that it's harder to come up with a name. And I'm not yet willing to convert to a numbering system, the titles are more for me to know one painting from the other. This model has been tagged Bangs by me because she has lovely hair and sports bangs, or as the Brits would say fringe.

Sitting Side View

Andrea Sitting Side View 7"X5" oil on panel


"Walking Nude" is a 6"X6" oil painting on a panel. I like the simplicity of this pose, and chose to scrape away some of the paint from the background field to add emphasis to the action of her movement. Thus opening a space for her to move into, so to speak.

"Andrea on a Pink Background" and yes I know it looks red in this picture, but I swear it looks kind of pinky red in real life, so I'm sticking with this title. 5"X7" oil on panel.

The Vacant Lot

I did this 6X6 oil painting during a recent plein air event in Lake Saranac, NY. Where even the weedy back lots were stunning.

Tilted Back

"Tilted Back" 6"X6" oil on panel. These little figurative works I've been posting are done during 15 minute poses. During the earlier short poses I prepare my tools, then during the 5 minute poses, I start painting and wipe out each unfinished start. All along I'm waiting for the one or two 10-15 minute pose of that days session. I keep a special paint kit just for these life sessions, to minimize any unnecessary fussing around with equipment. It only takes one little snafu to lose precious time.
The buzzer goes off, and the model puts on a robe,  steps off the stand, and walks away.

I just wondered around the neighborhood a bit, and came across this park, I was attracted to the big circles of mulch and the old trees. This is the site of Fort Washington,  and the highest spot in Manhattan. 6"X12" oil on panel.
