Napa Valley Art & California Landscape Paintings
ANGEL ... oil/canvas 20x24"
I really enjoyed doing this painting... First and foremost, the subject is my
favorite. I love the sense of confidence and self-assurity that is evident in young
women today... Technically, this painting is fast approaching a direction
which I am wanting to go... tight brush work for the face and loose,
almost abstract handling of the background and fabric. A great deal of knife
work and digging through the paint... So as not to be formulaic, I try to be
sensitive to the subject and the intention behind each painting...
At a certain point the painting dictates how to handle the medium!
