This expressive but concise pose appeals to me for its strength. It is a flowing female form yet contemplative in its unity. The brilliant tones give it strength. A variety of reds, magenta, yellows and lavenders combine to create a contrasting liveliness to the pose. The bright figure is in contrast to the peaceful greens. Greens of many shades from yellow greens to blue greens mix together in interesting swirls to bring peace to the composition. I love brilliant colors and the challenge of a restricted color palette is overcome using a rich variety of paints. I like to work with a palette knife and heavy body acrylics to give me depth and dimension.
High quality acrylic paints and a polymer gloss varnish with UVLS for protection against fading and sunlight.
