Looking Down - NFS

"Looking Down", 10 x 8 In, Oil on Panel
When I paint portraits, I sometimes like to experiment with different head positions, so this one is "looking down." There are always challenges with unusual poses, but it definitely makes the painting of it interesting.


  1. I've liked all the paintings you've posted of this model but this one may be my favorite. Perhaps because of the warm colors offset by that cool highlight on the side of her face or perhaps because of the downward glance. Very lovely.

  2. Kathryn this is lovely, especially the cool notes on the hair and neck. Clearly very well observed.
