White Slip Dress

Acrylic on Panel - 5 x 7 inches - Click Here to Bid

This is an second attempt to a quick sketch I did last year. This time I worked on the measurements and shape relationships better, but still tried to rush and keep it loose. The dress has not only in light and shadow, but had a sort of glowing luminosity that was hard to capture.  I think this one turned out better, technically, but the original had more movement and excitement.

Love your loose work.
So much expression is so few brush strokes.
Very nice.

Thanks Rick. More brushstrokes than I was hoping to do, but i guess it's the ones that remained that count.
