I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good work Charles, The light coming on the figure is very well done. and yes she looks melancholic. Some one should take her dancing.ReplyDelete
Another successful composition, Charles. The frame of the mirror introduces an interesting element of uncertainty, making the viewer linger and take a second look.ReplyDelete
Lovely painting , like the light and like the colours.ReplyDelete
This painting is a sad song to me. That bit of light across her hair and face evokes a feeling of looking through tear filled eyes.ReplyDelete
As always Charles, amazing.
Beautiful painting. Very moving. Makes me wonder what has made her feel this way. You have captured deep emotion. Love the light in this piece.ReplyDelete
