    Female Portrait in Oils

    I did this after seeing the Donato Giancola "The Mechanic" series. he inspired me to get back into oils again after not doing anything for 20 years! So THanks. I hope this is a start of a good series for me of Figurative work. It will be on display in Nashville at the Art Crawl on 5th Ave on Jan 2ndd 2010. I would love to have any C&C on it.

    I think the camera I used (iphone) didn't capture the colors quite right. They are a bit more vibrant....

    The lighting on the figure is a bit too even which is flattening everything out. Don't be afraid of moving away from the overall high-key on the figure. Give her some stronger shadowing and the forms will become more rounded.

    Check out some of Caravaggio's work. You might find it inspiring.
