City Girl Leah x/post cityscapes

oils on canvas panel size 8 x 10 inches.
Please excuse the poor quality of the picture.
It shows a family member Leah in a Liverpool club,she is a professional dancer who dancers all over the world,she is also a very artistic photographer who composed and set up this picture herself and got a friend to take on her mobile phone,I have done this quick painting for her.

A really nice painting with attractive girl. Good job! You can try to paint a good portrait of her.

It will be great to see that portrait! I also love to paint ballet women.

Re: City Girl Leah x/post cityscapes

Her picture looks attractive and fascinating! You can try verdaccio with green colored underpainting. That works great for me when I did portraits. I did light colored cool green underlayer similar to what Vermeer did for his portraits. Value must be lighter than normal. Then I paint over with several earths pigments and Cobalt blue. Cadmium Red deep for lips. Green underlayer will give you better control to make skin color shades when it is visible through skin colored paint layer.

oops, sorry I missed this Dave. I like the figure setup with the window; dramatic and great composition.
Good luck on the portrait.

She's so pretty! I like, in your painting, that her eyelashes are just visible. Classy sexy.
