New oil study...

Hey guys~! here is a new oil study I did. I'm really disappointed with the face and hair, I didn't put enough effort in and I think the colors are... weird or something. Anyway, this was to practice painting cloth in oils. It took around 6-9 hours and was done during my painting class. This was referenced from a stock photo by http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/ (who has amazing stock photos!!)

For some reason I dislike taking my time and really putting a lot of effort into "studies". If I can get the gist of what I am painting that is usually good enough.. Maybe I should work on that... :P

Lately I've been working on a couple magic cards, and I've recently been working on Infinite Ammo's Marian project (concept art, art direction) with another great artist lady named Ashley Dumonchelle (http://dumonchelledraws.blogspot.com/).

Anyway, better get back to work! <3

I love the piece, congratulations! I have an over tendency to over work cloth and turns into muck, but yours has a subtle and 'light' feeling. Can't wait for your next piece

The painting is beautiful. The light and colours in the cloth are amazing. The cloth falls so naturally around her body. I love the piece, I am looking forward to what you paint next.

This is a super beautiful painting Katie. Definitely one of my favourites of your work. :D
Also - commenting on your next post -I can't wait to see the new style you try. Architecture sounds like it could be really cool.
Good luck! <3
