Hi Dick,

This is very moving and nicely painted. Great color combinations.

At a quick glance, I'm wondering if her calves are a bit thin - but it could be she has them tucked under her more.

I'm also wondering if the brighter blue shadow right in front of her knee shouldn't be softened to another color so it doesn't compete with the water in the background.

Glad you posted this and your others.

oh, I think this is good...the foreshortening of the leg is good...how long did this take? I've worked all day on a sketch of a figure with foreshortening, it'll never look as flowing as this...it suits your style of work...agree about the bit of blue though...

Dick - I love this! The large format and imposing figure makes a fantastic composition. Excellent work!

Nice work Dick.

The windswept, vulnerable appearance of the model is quite different from the lazy, relaxed pose I was expecting from the title. It is, to me, quite a profound and thought provoking image.

As always, I'm impressed by your handling of the oil pastels.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Barb, you're right about the blue shadow spot of the bag.
I hadn't noticed how distracting it actually is.

great sketch, reminds me of degas. I like the texture and the colors except for that infamous blue spot... :)
