Figure Painting

by Karen L. Kintz

This was the second project in intermediate painting. We painted from a live model for four three hour class periods, and I finished it up on another day in six hours. This was the first time I painted a figure, and it is the biggest canvas I have ever painted on. All that being said, I am happy with the result. I really do not know what to do with it though… It is 3′ by 4′ water mixable oil on canvas. My next painting will be a narrative in the same size, and we have two months to plan and work on it. I am very excited to paint something I will want to hang on my wall!
