FIGURE 1 by Linda Popple

Oil on Panel

I've been working on painting the figure.  My first attempt is simply the figure painted straight forward. This is the first painting in this process.  My goal is to abstract the figure with lost edges, which is not as easy as it sounds. I'm looking forward to exploring the back and forth that takes place at the easel as the figure loses some of its definition.  My next painting will be this same composition with the figure abstracted.
