Woman eating a biscuit. Oil on linen on board. 11x14 ins. I thought I would put up an oil painting for a change. A portrait of sorts, not formal, but of a woman enjoying the sun and a biscuit. She was reclining on a deck lounger on a wooden deck. I left the rails of the deck out, as they were too structured and rigid for my composition.  I kept the background loose and vague. The painting is a combination of brushwork and palette knife. What captured the image of the person for me, was the highlight side profile of the head of the subject.
