Anne's Island Getaway
1999 - Watercolors and Correction Fluid on Paper

Hmm. What am I missing here? Could it be, I dunno....an arm?!

What was I thinking here? Maybe for you, this isn't an issue, but for me, this was always the first thing that jumped to mind. For some unknown reason, I never finished drawing the left arm. Now, of course, (March 2004), I would simply reframe the picture, and move the model to the edge of the frame. That would solve the arm dilemma, give the painting an asymmetric composition, and just look cool. But that's what I would do now.

I wan't completely satisfied with this painting, but looking now, I have to say it's pretty good. I wanted to paint some models as a challenge to myself, to improve my drawing and sketching skills. Considering that I was still very much learning, Anne looks very good. This pose is especially challenging, and I'm impressed that I could pull it off.

Not bad, overall. Very similar to Mogdilani and Rouault, who were interests of mine at the time.
