Oil wash sketch

This was the first painting I sold... and also one of the paintings I'm fondest of.

We'd painted the model before and I had completely stuffed up the painting, so when she walked in for this session I immediately had a feeling of impending doom, but when she posed I knew that it was going to be a fantastic session.

This painting was done as a study for a bigger work; the bigger work is still unfinished a year down the line and has very little emotional value to me. However, this little one; she's my pride and joy.
