# 93 The Model Fell Asleep!

Quick and loose brushwork made this piece come together. I toned the background to the color of brown paper, then as I painted the portrait, I tried to use the background color as a middle fleshtone, adding subtle darks and lights to bring out my figure. It is a painting done with subtle tints over this single background tone, this leads one to a tonalist style of painting. JLC
