Red and Gray

200.00

11" x 14" oil painting on 1" thick cradled wood panel

This is another monochromatic painting where I use an accent color, in this case an earthy red for the hair. The pose is based on a photo from Croquis Cafe, an online reference site for figurative nudes. I drew it out on paper first, rendering everything to a high degree of finish, and then adding a layer of amber shellack, which you can still see along the edges. I liked the aesthetic of creating a border and allowing the substrate and underlying materials to show through. The painting is mounted onto a cradled wooden panel for an elegant final product.

This painting ships unframed in a box
