Venus is finally finished. Due to unforseen circumstances, I used two models for this portrait who were so different in body type, that I almost had to start from scratch half way through the painting. I worked long and hard on this painting. I have titled the painting, "Jennifer as Venus".
My favorite part of this painting is the elbow extended toward the viewer on the right side of her body, or left side of painting as viewed. I think that I finally got a very ethereal quality and the light on the bone is the best I have ever done. Her eyes pleased me also!
