Re: Sunlit figure

Lovely, Haytham! I like the unfinished look for the background.
What size?

Re: Sunlit figure

I like the whole effect. You really captured the subject. What paper did you use?

Re: Sunlit figure

Thanks! I could still work the background a bit more, but I would keep the unfinished feel, it focuses the attention on the subject.

I used Canson watercolor paper 9x12 and Sennelier oil pastels.

Beautiful! I love your blues here. The pose, the skin tones - all are wonderfully done. I agree that the unfinished background works very well here.

Great job!

This is beautiful! The light and texture of the background really enhances the painting. Nicely done!

Re: Sunlit figure

This is great. I love the skin tones and the fact that you kept details minimal. I agree that the unfinished BG fits well.
The only thing that bothers me slightly are the neck and chest, I'd add a bit of shading to them to give more depth.
