Slightly reworked version:
It’s a pure oil sketch, a fine art piece that’s also very sort-of ‘graphic-design-ish’…
After working from a photo, leaping somersaults, and jumping through hoops of fire, I arrived at this ‘Georges Rouault-like’ painted image !!
It’s of a beautiful hard-working Thai woman I am friends with…
I don’t know whether she’ll like it, but I love it !!
She’ll probably never want to speak to me again !! 55555555555555
Five colours: raw umber, black, white, yellow ochre, and red.
Two versions:  the original oil on a 12 x 9″ canvas; and,  a slightly digitalised version…
She will like it!
If she was naked or dressed like a stifpper in the art you made, then maybe it may be different.
But this was tasteful!
Hahahaha….. I think she liked it, Ryan. I don’t know though, and I don’t really care !! Unless a work is commissioned I feel no need to please the subject. And I like to experiment. When I was an art student back in the late 1960’s (and on occasion more recently) I think the life room was my favourite place. Just standing behind an easel looking at a naked body, (male or female, young or old,) and attempting to draw it, was a challenge. Sometimes the female model would be young and voluptuous and then it was not an easy task to concentrate on drawing rather than enjoying the sight of her flesh !! But the instructors were good, and corrected drawing errors, although their style of drawing tended towards the academic. Maybe some of them were also strippers… but, hey, there but for the grace of you know who go all of us !!

HAHAHA!!!! I can imagine! I did art school too! Your Right. It’s almost like I could draw using my….well, you get the idea. Takes a while for people to realize this is what they do for a living. It only helps so much to know that though! HAHAHA!!!!
