"Solo Performance" original oil 6x6"
Ellipses are really, really tough. It is amazing how easy it is to get them wrong. I find I rarely paint them without having to make several minor adjustments in my drawing until things read properly. Painting them from life is even harder than from photos, because if you change your angle of view even slightly, the curves change. It's such valuable drawing practice, I find it's great to try lots of them from lots of different perspectives to build on these skills.
