Emily--study from life

This is a study from life of Emily, she dressed a little "retro" for us. She was an excellent model and needless to say she got lots of oooooohhhhhhs and ahhhhhhhhhhs. I spent about 3 - 3 1/2 hours on this study. I'm still concentrating on watching my edges.

It feels like I'm looking at her through a fogged up mirror...so lovely!

She's a lovely girl ..such big eyes!

PS: I guess "Bowling Greens" are in many places? :-) Did you ever read the history of why your town is called that?

Hi Sandra, interesting comment and you're exactly right about the fogged mirror. Thanks!

Pat, yes there are a few BG's--of course I'm partial to mine. I have read the history and one theory is the same as the your park, named after a bowling green.

She is a stunning model and your study is wonderful. I am not sure I could be a model for so long though.
I love those eyes.
