Life Painting

Ok, so I'm not as experienced in painting as I am in drawing, but I've gotta say that this was probably my best painting of the year. I only managed to finish painting half the model's body in one session, so I had to "memorize" the rest on my own (unfortunately there was no reference picture we could look at). Other than the foot being a bit too small, I think the rest of the body is quite well in proportion and the colours go together well (the body stands out against the green cloth and the soft, warm, greyish background).

So I know it's not perfect, but coming from a guy who has very little painting experience, I'd say it looks quite nice!
