Pam on the Sofa

Pam on the Sofa by Liza Hirst

oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé
15 cm x 15 cm / 5,9" x 5,9"

Visiting Germany for a few days. I have to practice painting away from home, in other people's houses, which I find quite challenging - first of all getting down to it under visiting circumstances and then trying not to spill the terpentine, not to get painting on anything else than the canvas (and inevitably on my hands...) and not being in any other person's way. Pam was very cooperative. She stayed put for as long as I needed her - great!

Yay Pam,

A great composition, and lovely mood Liza. I like how you've treated the face. I've been thinking about your paintings a lot. This is very
Diebenkorn. So gooood.

Hi Barbara, very well observed. I must admit, while painting I asked myself inbetween "now, how would Diebenkorn have treated this?"
It helps me to keep it simple.
Thanks so much!
