Oil on 24x24" canvas
Vera is a figment of my imagination. I used a reference photo but there is very little likeness left of the original image. I like the gesture, seems it's a very popular angle to use in painting and portraiture. It has a nice dynamic. She's in the forest with broken light, a rooster crows in the distance, there's a glint of reflected light coming from something...my goal is to engage the viewer in a way that invites them to complete the picture.
