Quiet Time

Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

Comments: This model came to my studio for a portrait session. We tried several poses that just weren’t quite right.  Then she relaxed for a moment to think, and this was perfect.  I loved the way her glasses slid down her nose, and her hand threaded through her hair.  I used a rough watercolor paper that was textured with heavy acrylic gesso.  This allowed a lot of underlying colors to show through the top layers of dry brushed paint.  I like the way this adds a visual vibration to a quiet image.
