"Soothing Bath"

Soothing Bath
8 x 10"
Oil on 1/4" thick gessoed MDF board

  This is my contribution for this week DPW's "The Bathing Woman Challenge" by Carol Marine. It is a really beautiful reference photo that I can't resist. I tried to paint-as-it at the beginning, then I found out there are "too much to handle" in this scene, I just want to focus on the mainly subject, then I decide to adjust the background to fit what I want it to be. This painting has so much potential detail to do, but I want to stop at here before it's  getting too tight. Maybe some day I will paint a large version of it again. Thanks Carol for a great opportunity to paint your beautiful model!
