"Manasira"


6x11

Acrylic on Bristol Board



This was a simple portrait study. I was pleasently surprised with this painting. I usually have to work at merging my backgrounds with the foreground. I admire artists that make it look easy because for me it is NOT. I usually treat my backgrounds as a serious afterthought or but so much detail in them that they conflict with the image. I love the moody quality that the painting creates.

I really liked this - and responded immediately to this face staring back at me on the screen.

I just wanted to say as much since you are new to blogging and it can feel a bit lonely if no one comments!
