Oil on Canvas Panel
This sweet oil portrait of my Rosa Leigh is 11×14 on canvas board. In the original photograph, she’s wearing hot-pink plaid PJs, but I decided to dress her in a mix of ultra marine and cerulean blues because, well, the girl just looks amazing in blue.
The tilt of her head and angle of her face were super challenging, but the positioning really captures that “Rosa Leigh look”, ya know?
This painting was the beginning of my recent playfulness with the juxtaposition of blurred and sharp lines. I like the fading of her chin and hair into the background, and I’m actually taking that even farther in my more-recent work. You’ll see soon.
Thanks for taking a look. Have a colorful day!
