Oil on fine cotton canvas board 12" x 9"
After the previous "hard edged" painting I wanted to try something in Sandra Flood style. I have recently received a copy of her new book and the paintings are delicious. It meant no hard edges (or hardly any) and the model's face to be predominant in the painting. This approach also reminds me of Jonathan Yeo, a British portrait painter who often does the face in some detail but keeps clothes and background sketchy. I must say this was a totally enjoyable way to work.
ps. I am not sure whether it is ok to use a song title (one of my favourites from long ago) for a painting. Anybody know?
