Oil sketch of Jennie

Jennie modelled for us at our regular morning session at the scout hut. I thought that her cap and the neckline of her top gave off a bit of a 'sixties babe' vibe. It was her first ever modelling session (she can usually be found at her potter's wheel) and I think/hope she enjoyed the experience as she has agreed to sit again next week. This is how the sketch progressed, once again I chose to used the limited palette of Ivory Black, Titanium white, yellow ochre and cadmium red, although I did have some transparent red oxide on the palette for the grisaille.
