La Gordita

I first did this quick pen sketch of what the painting would look like. I don't typically do sketches, but I was just doodling in my sketch book and drew her up.

I was inspired by the Gordita paintings and I wanted to make a lovely full-figure woman. One that was not shy about her curves and beauty.

I am still working on some details, such as the shadowing of her dress and the wall.

I wonder what she is holding behind her? :) Sometimes I feel like my little ladies in my paintings are alive, and I wonder what they would say, or what they would do..
Call me crazy :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
