Her Gaze

Her Gaze, Oil, 10 x 8", available

Adrienne is a petite young woman with the most compelling gaze. The shadows are painted very thin and the light values, especially in the face, are impasto. My intent was to show some interesting brush work in this 2.5 hour sketch from life.

  4. Lovely portrait with such rich colors.

    Mary, I was wondering, where do you insert the labels - like young lady, portrait etc?

    Thanks,
    Trish

    In the small box that says,'LABELS'. It is on the left under where you enter your body of text.
