This was a piece I was working on a while back, a study I thought I might take to more of a finish at some point. I like the peaceful introspective feeling it implies with a slightly voyeuristic manor. I am always trying to work looser, and I found an interesting balance between naturalistic lighting and expressive line work with broad gestural paint strokes. Sometimes faster is better.
