Reclining figure portrait - oil painting

Woman Resting
Oil painting on canvas
18 x 26 inches
I had intended to make working drawings from direct observation for this painting.  However my model and I had plans for a very yummy lunch in Limassol Old Town, so time was pressing and I took several photos instead.  Back in the studio I then made a drawing with colour/tonal notes to work out the composition and used the photos as reference when making the painting.
