This sketch in oil on panel was completed in 40 mins at the end of a session of still life painting during my first week at the Artist League of New York. I have made several figure studies since my arrival and will continue to jump between still life and figure painting while under the studio guidance of Gregg Krutez.
The model portrayed in this sketch is Cathy, she has featured in many famous artists works including Nelson Shanks and she has been working at the League for many year now.
My concept for this sketch was to work with strong shapes and complementary colours .
