Naxi Girl - NFS

4/9/10 "Naxi Girl", 12" x 8", Oil
This is a "limited stroke" exercise from Peggi, meaning that I limited myself to 35 brush strokes (actual number at the end was about 40)  making it essential to load the brush with paint and think in big shapes.  This is when painting is fun!  There is no "fixing" anything. This sketch is from a photo of one of our models in Yu Hu Village during my trip to Yunnan Province in March, 2009.
