    I love the colours on the body and the mundane look on the face. This painting is out of the “norm” of other painted nudes…
    The colours are of great significance to me

    Thank you for your insightful comment Jackie. I have just looked closely at the thinly painted areas and I’m quite sure it’s an oil painting. I painted it in Irving Petlin’s class in Cooper Union and he remarked that it looked like “German Expressionism.” I do remember selecting the warmer colours for areas that would normally be painted with cooler, darker colours. I have not drawn or painted many faces so I am very pleased with this one. She has a look of resignation.
