Oils on Canvas
The second piece to match Extend. Did I do them intentionally as a bit of a diptych? not really, I came up with the poses as the same time and became a bit fascinated by this color palette and backlighting. I also wanted to see if I could do something this complex on such a tiny surface. it turns out the answer is yes, yes I can. I am very excited by these two pieces, painting at the moment is enthralling because I never have any idea what is going to emerge. with each piece I learn a little more and get a little better.
I chose this title because her pose reminds me of a bow being pulled, she is taught and tense but ready. ready for what? I have no idea.
