Sometimes a model strikes a pose that is so classical it begs for a very classical painting. This was one such pose. Our model, a former art student herself, always knows how to get the most out of any pose, but this seemed particularly lyrical to me. So I added the Ingres to the background, less anyone didn't recognize the reference to paintings from another era.
Well, off to a week of plein air painting..."cityscapes" if such a thing can be said of Bend, Oregon. I am really looking forward to this workshop with Ken Auster. More to post, soon, I hope
