New painting! This portrait has a very direct gaze back at the viewer, and the strong tone contrast gives it a sculptural feel. I’m interested in identity, internal narrative and reflection, and this portrait gave me a great opportunity to explore these themes.
The mix of warm and cool yellows emphasise the bleached hair and I loved the different textures of the skin, hair, jewellery and fabric strap. The bright yellow would add a splash of rich colour to your walls!
