Here's my latest effort. It started out as a nude lady but I decided to provide her with a skirt. I find that taking photograph and putting it on the screen enables me to see changes or additions that might be made.
Any comments gratefully received.

(I'm adding the "butt" icon ( :rolleyes: ) )

The composition and mood are established nicely, but may I suggest that reducing the chroma (colour intensity) of the skin might be helpful?

I thought of William Russell Flint right off then looked to see if you lived in England. :)

I like the overall treatment of this piece. Really nice brushwork and composition. Only thing that bothers me a little is what's happening just beyond her feet? How's that chesterfield, or whatever you call it, end? Just looks confusing to me.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, a pose inspired by WRF. It's stalled now cos' of the end of the divan. It doesn't make sense. Now thinking hard. Might cut the canvas and re-frame it.

kopo, I hope you'll be sharing the result once it's finished. :)
