The Girl with the Purple EyeShadow ‚Äč

16" by 20" oil on canvas 


This is a long-necked, Modigliani-inspired portrait. I love working in yellows, whites and magenta tones. My favorite parts of this painting are the slanted right eye, her curved nose and the winding braid. (Braids are not easy to paint!) I used a palette knife to create most of the background and some of the highlights.
