28 x 22? Shouldn't be a problem should it?? ;)

i usually put them in the studio and give it a look over everyday. the Robe, I think terry cloth BUT I'm not sure.

I'm not sure if you understood what I meant. I was talking about using this pose to do another painting where it was in a different enviroment. Does that make more sense? I have a lot of friends that draw from their paintings, changing things around, and that leads to new paintings or helps to go further with the first painting.

The towel pointing directly into the corner is great, like the whole painting. Will you keep the softness? It creates such a glow.

thanks Stefan, I hoping to keep most of the softness. and playing with how the arms and the lower half of the canvas get soft.

Go get'em tonight. :)
