Lady in Red

I haven't posted in a while, and, actually, I've been in a little bit of a painting funk.  We've been out of town a lot AND the weather has been pretty enough to play some golf.  So, my painting has not been a top priority.  Today, I went back to Creative Figure class after a two-week absence.   Andy is such a good teacher!  Today we worked on the core form (pelvis, hip, pear-shape that forms the middle of the body) and connecting the darks.  Then, I came home and worked on the painting above.  I probably should work on it some more, but may let it "sit" for a while.  I have a tendency to overwork pieces.  It's not "perfect" but I'm pleased with my progress!   (I might need to take a photography class. I didn't make a careful image placement and the top ribbon of dark is actually not part of the painting - sorry!)
