Figure Painting

 My first figure painting in quite a while. 18x24, from life of course.  It's the first time I've worked from a figure model outside of a classroom situation.  I had a great model, but I rushed the painting too much especially in the beginning.  I knew I would only have 30-40 work hours for this painting and ended up pressuring myself to work too quickly, skipping critical stages of my process, which ended up actually costing me more time.  Over all, I'm pleased with how the painting turned out and I'm excited to get into the next one.
