"Brenda 2"
Oil on canvas board  16" x 12"

These two paintings were done in a figure painting class taught by Ingrid Chistensen. Brenda was our lovely model and she came for two classes, sitting in the same position wearing a lovely green bikini. I was painting Brenda 2 with the idea I would paint her form and then add the bathing suit. Well the 2nd class ended and not suit in sight (sorry Brenda). I guess if I had painted small, I could of finished it! I find figure painting very intimidating but Ingrid made it very fun and interesting. Everyone's easel was in a circle around Brenda so we all had a different view.
