Painting number 1

Alright, this painting is for my second year painting class with Christine Major. I was to derive some sort of inspiration from an artist chosen by my professor. The artist was chosen based on our particular style or ideas so for my artist she chose Lisa Yuskavage. She is a painter in her 40s who was raised by a trucker father and eventually went on to obtain her Masters in Fine Arts in Yale University. Not bad eh? She does very sexual images of women who are often nude. So I thought I would show a little less than Lisa and focus on portraits.
