Portrait of a Pensive Woman
9" by 12" oil, cold wax and stitching on canvas
This painting is fresh off the easel and will need some time to dry. Estimated shipping date is July 22.
I began this painting by stitching the lower half of her face onto the canvas. The decisions I made from there were all trial and error. I just kept going until it looked and felt "right." I decided to use white outlines and just a little bit of cubing to make her more interesting. I love the simplicity and complexity of this piece.
