Thanks, Karsten. When you can't find a model (or don't have old drawings around from model sessions), you can easily use any of the dozens of catalogs that come in the mail every week :)

Beautiful, love how you've made contrast the bold outfit with teh subtle figure.
Now seriously, I do want those gloves, and the matching panties too (in the appropiate size please) :)

RHCarpenter said...

Thanks, Teresa :) Well, Christmas is coming - you never know what Santa might bring you!!

Wanted to let you know..you really inspired me to remember to go back over my dreaded watercolors and work more with them. I also never realized how many put the finished paintings up...I do think putting up the good, bad and ugly is wonderful.

Thanks so much, Vicki, Deb and Karsten!! Vicki, you've been watching my blog long enough to know THAT isn't true! ha ha

Deb, she's definitely a girly girl and it was fun to paint this one.

Karsten, glad I inspired you. Go back and look at those old ones that didn't quite make it - sometimes you can get some good things out of them a week or a month later :)

Rhonda, this is really cute and clever. Love the colors and the composition. What is the inspiration for the name, Datura?
Beautifully painted. Love all the "muscles" that you have very believably painted.

RHCarpenter said...

Thanks, Ruth. The name Datura came after painting a lot of datura plants and flowers :) and the story just happened as I posted so I guess that's what she wanted to be called! I have taken life drawing classes so it has helped me see muscles I normally wouldn't have seen in the human body.

Ruth said...

And, Rhonda, look how they have helped your paintings! Wow! We never can learn too much, can we?
Will have to google datura plant. Not familiar with those.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Your comments mean so much to me and are always wise.
