Naomi Gold - stage 1


 Actually really the second stage because I forgot to photograph stage 1 the tonal underpainting so this is that stage plus a bit of colour put into the background. I intend to paint this more like how I painted "Madurai" recently, in a more painterly way as opposed to my penchant for painting figures too smooth and tight so I intend to resist every temptation to play safe and push myself to take more risks on this one. I want the lightest parts of the painting to be the light hitting the necklace, earrings and nose ring and intend to use a limited palette probably based on the yellow/violet colour complementary, trying to keep it looser and more painterly....

The model again is the lovely Naomi Wood, the photo from a session of a few years ago for an aborted painting called "Naomi Gold", hopefully I make a better job of it than the last one!
