leggy on the water (couple a day #9)
As promised last week, here is another study of my beloved 'leggy lady'. This one is "Leggy on the Water" (oil on linen, 20" square, $600). I've always been fascinated with this photo and how much tension is created with that flexed, extended leg. I want to take it on on a bigger format someday but haven't worked up the courage yet as it's one of those pieces that has to be JUST RIGHT or it won't work at all.
In this woman's defense, I do have some very demure shots of her, but they're just not as good!
Also, I posted the more professional pic. of "Boys of Summer" on the website this morning.
