"Stephanie - Nude with Pearls" 24x36 oil on canvas

Finally, something new to post! Although the photos aren't so great, I'm really pleased with this new painting. Done in two weeks in Sharon's class. It's big, for me. I really struggled with the skin tone and and natural light this time of year is a challenge. I plan to glaze it later to make it a little warmer, but all in all it was a good experience. The second photo is a detail shot.


  1. nice Tonya...are you planning on doing another Karin Jurik workshop in May?

  2. I really like the coolness of the colors now. They are so subtle. It's such a sophisticated color palette, very effective with that soft light.

  3. Thanks to you both. Yes, Christine, I'm in Karin's workshop again. Doesn't seem there are many other repeat students. I will miss you guys. Thanks for checking in to my sporadic blog. Another new painting will be posted at the end of this week.
