Reclining Nude

This little painting was on the easel at the same time as 'Reclining nude on Persian carpet' - I've found that at times it is a very good idea to have a smaller painting available to work on so that I don't over paint the piece I'm working on.
In this case the smaller one was where I tested my colour mixes before applying it to the bigger painting; colours and tone need to be caefully mixed before applying.... as it turns out it turned out this experiment, or side project, became one of my favorites.
The painting has an alla prima feel to it, but it was done over about three sessions with the model.

When I listed 'Standing Nude' on a local auction site... I accidentally loaded the image of the original 'Reclining nude', which was already sold in March!

To my amazement it was snapped up within hours of posting it; I had to cancel the auction, which left my buyer disappointed. I offered him this painting as an alternative - he accepted two days later he had the painting an I had the cash.

I've got to get this model to pose for me again... she's lovely!
