Rose, Age 18

  • Painting
  • Acrylic on paper
  • A3 portrait

An outcome from exploring life painting, inspired by Alice Neel's 'people paintings'. The subject is my brother whilst he works at a desk. We worked on this portrait on a sunny day, so there was a great contrast of light from the window. I enjoy incomplete paintings with the undercoat of orange paint being seen through the gaps and utilising it in the colour of the shirt.
