{la donna} oil painting

My inspiration for this painting derived from an advert for fake-tan, or shampoo, I can't quite remember! While I sketch women quite often, this was the first time I tackled the human form using oil paints...

My main focus was on the light & shadow of the skin and hair, and it made a refreshing change from my usual fashion illustration sketches and abstract-expressionist oil paintings (the latter of which has fallen by the wayside of late... I blame the job-hunt!).
