Le Shampooing by L. Martel

This is a 20″ x 24″ oil on canvas called Le Shampooing. The painting was started many years ago and put aside because life got in the way. To remind you, this is International Women’s Day. We’ve been told we shouldn’t spend any money today, we shouldn’t go to work and we should just take the day off. Yeh, like that’s going to happen. Β Life still gets in the way. So I resumed this painting and it has had a four hour rework. Now it must dry before I can continue. The first one is before the four hours and the last painting is after. Progress is slow. You can see the areas that were worked on – the drapery, flowers on the jug and basin and a little on the body. Flesh is difficult to do I think Renoir was the master there. The basin is not regular in shape and that has to be corrected. And so it goes…….
