Spirit of Winter (sold)

This started as an experiment in making a portrait using non-traditional skin tones. I thought it would be fun to use blues and violets. The reference is a vintage photo of a model whose name I don't know, and there was a look about her that I just liked. Almost timeless. As I was layering and developing this piece in my acrylic and color pencil technique, I began creating a narrative where she is a spirit of winter. An ancient beauty who is inviting but chilly, holding immense power in a seemingly fragile exterior.

This mixed media portrait is made on archival paper with Prismacolor pencils and Golden Acrylics. It will be shipped unframed, sandwiched between two pieces of gator board and acid free glassine paper.
