Jenny Rodziewicz, 12" x 12", oil on canvas

Jenny is another newcomer to the club this semester.

While posing, Jenny kept her lips slightly parted throughout the session, adding an interesting expression. I had to be careful not to make the teeth too bright while just suggesting a hint of them under her lips.

Though she sat quietly and peacefully while posing,
the finished painting has a bold and even a bit sassy look. Having an inverted triangular background with very textured brushstrokes added to this expression.

This painting reminds me of the commercial illustration paintings of glamorous models in the '60s.
