"MODEL WITH SHAWL" by Alicia Tredway

Lately, just for a change, the drawing group I am part of have been drawing and painting the clothed figure.  Exciting and refreshing for a change although I do also still enjoy painting the nude.  I had my nose in the works of the 'Bay Area Figurative Painters of the 40s and 50s' this week and their bold use of color was on my agenda while painting this piece.  Painters can't help but be influenced by the work they like.

  1. I love how your loose brush strokes tell the story. A beautiful piece.
