6x8"". from my "paint another humanity series," showing the complex display and restraint of emotion through life-size portraits of women. all acrylic on canvas with finished edges, so they can be displayed unframed.
this was the first of the sketchy, water-coloury-looking ones in this series, it wasn't meant to be that way, but i liked it so much i left it, and it remains one of my favourites. i've done two others in this style, none of them deliberate, but i've found that if you try to fight a painting or sculpture into being what you think it should be, it resists. they sort of have a mind of their own. being a control freak, it's hard for me to submit and surrender the original vision, but with these, i'm glad i did. all three in this style are coated with clear gel to seal the pencil lines, so they won't smudge.
i don't do commissioned portraits of people because i don't see right: the people i paint don't look like the people i'm painting. all my people are fake.
