Looks like these folks were going for a Wyeth look here, but the model looks uncomfortable.

Agree with you Steve, maybe a slight body turn to camera and an elbow bend. Don't like how the straight arm anchors into the ground. Nice effect BTW. Thought I'd give it a vertical crop.

Cheers

Maybe this is not the only shot they took that day. Would be interesting to see other poses in same location.

Thanks for your kind comments.

Beautiful, Raniday. Ditto Steve and Duv.

I used Lucis and Buzz, and some hue and sat adjustments. I ran a Ted Lacascio oil action, and made my own adjustments.

Nev, how did you get that affect of the paint washing off the canvas toward the frame. today I used one I got in one of the forums and it looked fine but the more choices I have the better (for the look I am after).

Dave, I confess...I have a passion for filters and plugins.

Beauty in Oil.

Knew I had to use a lot of compression to get in under 100K. Figured I would take a little advantage of the artifacting (gives the oil more of a smushed stroke fill) for this one. For the curious, here was my original intent (nearly 500K).

Gorgeous! Love that chunky style. I tried to do a combination of Deep Paint and Impressionist. Like yours way better though!

Cheers
