"Private Moment (Amanda)" 18x36 oil on panel

Still on the easel at the Academy, my most recent painting finished in class yesterday. It will go in the class show which will be hung on April 2 and run for two weeks. So, I probably won't have a chance to photograph it until after the show. I was surprised and pleased at how well the composition turned out in this painting since I was one of the last in the class to "pick my spot" and that usually means a disadvantage in the view of the pose. But this was kind of nice, peeking past the backdrop/curtain at this lovely young woman. Amanda is an amazing model and a pleasure to paint. I learned a lot with this painting, too. (Thanks to Sharon, as always!)

  1. Tonya, this is a beautiful painting. I love everything about it. The composition is wonderful; it may have been one of the last spots but it was the best spot!
    You should be so proud of this work.
