Again This Week




Again This Week

For the third time this week I was in a session “J” was modeling for. This is a quick portrait of the pose she provided for the Independent Painters Group this morning.
16”x 20” acrylic on canvas pad

    1. I wasn’t very kind in this portrait. I didn’t pull out her best qualities, though it is a close likeness.
      Thank you

  2. This is truly amazing...how DO you do that - her skin is positively glowing!
    She seems deep in thought too...and the background is strongly suggestive of flames...yes, that's it...there is a fire behind her...and I see her on a beach at night, attending a beach party. She is awaiting the arrival of her partner, anticipating a wonderful night ahead.
    Oh I do hope he arrives soon...:)

    1. The background I have to admit was an attempt to put more life in this portrait. It might have been better to have let the background match the mood of the pose.

  3. Hi Anthony! My comment got in the spam box? Anyway, love the colors & contrasts ,and attitude as she seems holds inner dialog with herself...

    1. The pose was long. The background music heard too many times. the conversation with herself, unavoidable☺
