Tonight's oil painting (IN PROGRESS):

I am working on a small series of figures in pairs. This one was fun to paint! The strong and very dark shadows provided a simple framework for the composition. I like the woman's face on the left, it sits in almost total shadow. Right now I am refining and shaping both mouths, and the woman's face in shadow. I want to see how little detail I can include and still communicate a strong feeling of her character.

Thanks G+!

Best wishes,
