Reclining nude in green 14"x18" oil

With this painting we had her pose twice for a total of 6 hours which included breaks and setting it up.  Everything I have done of late has been alla prima, (painting wet into wet paint or all in one sitting) so it was a challenge to paint on it the second time on top of dry paint!   We had a warm yellowish bulb above her and north light coming in through the window at her feet which made for some interesting contrasting light.   I loved the foreshortening, one of my favorite things to do because of the challenge, I think.
