Maria (pastel on canvas).

This sultry picture is of Maria, one of my favourite models from the 80's.
The medium was experimental; working on stretched canvas with thin turpentine washes, and then working over it in pastel.
The painting was done from life. It was one I intended never to sell, but it is now with very good friends of mine in Den Haag.
