I don't do a lot of studies for gallery paintings. I prefer to jump right in while the idea is fresh and have at it. From time to time, however, I'll do a quick sketch or color study. This is a conte and pastel study for a painting I'm planning. Dramatic pose with bold red outfit should look nice against a dark background...maybe even in the woods? Not sure of the background at this point. Model-Robin V.
