Final “September Model”

September Model

Lilibeth Andre, September Model, Oil, 16x12

Here is my final attempt at September Model. The week was very hectic with many things coming up this fall so I was not able to get any more sittings.  Nonetheless, I rather like the raw finish on the background and shirt. What do you think?

In this sitting, my focus was on the skin and hair. I made some corrections to get the likeness where I felt comfortable with it and I worked the paint a bit to detail the features.

In the detail shown here you can see a close up of the work on the hair, the eye and nose. You can also appreciate the coloring of the skin to model the face. Of course, there is nothing like seeing a live painting but hopefully you can get an idea from the full picture and the details I provide.
