Painting of the model Blyre

Most of this  painting of a model named Blyre was painted from life at Webster Groves Christian Church,which is located near St.Louis Missouri. It was completed today as a looked at a digital photo I took during the model session. It was painted on Plyex Canvas Foundation Board 22″ wide x 38″ high and was painted with Palmer Prism Tempera and Liquitex Basics Acrylic paint. I painted over a previous model painting I had painted from life. Total painting time was about two hours. The model was wearing artificial flowers in her hair.
