Alexandra - 9" x 12" - Oil on canvas panel

Yesterday was the last day of my head painting class for summer term. I think all the students enjoyed the class, learned a lot, and made good progress. Here's one of the head studies I did a week or so ago toward the end of term. I like the neutral background and the slight tilt of the head. It is difficult to get different and interesting poses sometimes with the somewhat limited pool of models the school provides. We loved painting Alexandra because of her exotic latin looks. This study took about an hour and a half. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.
