Figure studies in oils

I spent part of this afternoon on small quick figure studies from photos.

This is me, from a photo taken this summer on our sailing cruise. Always wearing my favorite big dark sunglasses (HA—I didn't have to paint my eye)s. These sunglasses are especially cool because the bottom half is a reader for my aging eyes.
