Here's a 9x12 acrylic on canvas started at a life drawing session. I really enjoy doing costumed models. This was her own dress made of suede that she made and beaded herself. It was her wedding dress. Pretty cool.

It's a little less washed out in real life. Haha, I really dislike painting hands :)

This is very nice, Karina.

As for being washed out, your file just needed a little levels adjustment. I hope this is more true to the original.

This is so lovely! I love the dress, the pose. You've captured her proud yet graceful expression perfectly! Great work.

Thank you Michelle, Keri, Susan and tmcclary! I was really struck by how long she held that pleasant expression. This was a 3 hour session done in 20 minute poses with 10 minute breaks between. So often the models just seem to look bored out of their minds after a while! She really held her pose, very impressive :)
