Oil on linen.

Beccy sat on my bed and we chatted and listened to music for hours. The painting built up slowly in thin layers: first a tonal burnt umber, then a quick background, and then to the skin tones, hair and shirt. This is one of my most intimate portraits and the relaxed atmosphere of the sitting I think carries over into the work.
