"With Hat in Hand" 24 x 36 oil on canvas

Here's my latest from Sharon Sprung's class. A three week pose, but cut short by a few days of absence, both mine and the model's. All in all I was pleased. Sharon says I am moving to a new level, but need to focus on textures as well as giving more depth to the shadows, more contrast. I am really loving working on this larger size -- 24 x36.


  1. Tonya, this is a gorgeous painting. I really love the cool elegant tones you are achieving with these latest works. I think your teacher is right. I see a new level, a beautiful one.

  2. Tonya,
    This is beautiful. Wow. Love the grays. Great job.

  3. You captured the sensitive emotion of his face - this is really good! I agree with your teacher that you have moved to a new level :)
