On Chaise Lounge #2313 by Candy Barr

 16 x 20 inches Oil on canvas
 this was started painting over an unfinished portrait that was upside down.
As some of the underpainting remains, and it's always interesting the surprising juxtaposition of the two paintings together for a while.  Sometimes it makes sense to leave some of it, but the equanamity of the pose and light with her shadow didn't seem to need the previous red. I did decide to remove the cushion below her as it raised her up too much looking like she was levitating on the lounge.
