detail 18x37" in progress
I'm fairly excited about this painting. You might remember Laura, my model from sometime last year. Her face appeared cropped on cradled hardboard for a painting entitled "A Hesitant Introduction." I've been wanting to take the shots from her session and bring them together in some way that might make not only an interesting composition but also be fun to work on. Success!
I won't go into too much detail except to say that there are four figures in the painting, all Laura, and I can honestly say that I'm happy with everything about it. We'll see!
Thanks for stopping by, hope the weekend was a good one.
it's fantastic so far! i can't wait to view to finished composition!ReplyDelete
I would be happy too, with such amazing talent as yours! I admire how masterfully you put those colors in just the right places. It's wonderful!ReplyDelete
Looking good so far Suzanne, I also love the drawn lines in her shirt .ReplyDelete
I'll be interested to see the final since you indicate this a detail and work in progress.
Gosh- how can it get any better?ReplyDelete
We have learned in watching you--- everything is possible- and this already looks perfect to us.
Damn, you're good!!! These are superb portraits ... the expressions, the hair ... BRAVO, Suz!ReplyDelete
love your loose brush work Suz, and two more figures to go? i'm intrigued... looking forward to seeing the finished piece :)ReplyDelete
Oh she is quite pretty and has gorgeous hair! I can't wait to see the completed project. And I agree with you...SUCCESS!!ReplyDelete
Your excitement excites me! Feelin' the joy!ReplyDelete
Wow!!!! This is an exciting piece. I LOVE it. I look forward to the finish. Excellent.ReplyDelete
Oh wow! This is fantastic! I just love her expressions and I recognized her straight away from your last painting of her. I think the bit I like the most is the way the light is hitting her face :0)ReplyDelete
Stunning!!! Don't know what else to say. ;-)ReplyDelete
Love, love it Suzanne!!ReplyDelete
Flawless, Suzanne! I look forward to seeing more.ReplyDelete
Wow!!! I can not wait to see this finished, it's already Amazing!!! You really get a lot of personality out of these portraits, I feel like I know her and I've never met her. So cool!!! Rock On!!!!!ReplyDelete
Wow, gonna be amazing!!!!!ReplyDelete
She has a great face and to see it four ways in one painting will be a treat. Great painting S!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that you're happy! This thing we do is supposed to be fun. I can't wait to see where you're going with this. Happy Creating!!!ReplyDelete
Excellent work Suzanne!ReplyDelete
Suze, something I really LOVE about your work is it's complexity. You can take a seemingly simple subject and bring out everything that's unique and complex about it, making us see things that we wouldn't otherwise see.ReplyDelete
In other words. . . I LOVE this painting. Well done! Huzzah!!
This already looks amazing - I'm really looking forward to the development of this piece!ReplyDelete
Fantastic, Suzanne!!! It's going to be a beautiful piece!!!ReplyDelete
will come back to see x4 ... really engages the viewer with 2 suzanne ...lots of questions to askReplyDelete
Goodness...Your work is absolutely beautfiful..fine artReplyDelete
Can't wait to see the other two! Great work.ReplyDelete
Unforgettable! You've come up with a beautiful piece... a prize winner, I think.ReplyDelete
thank you everyone for these incredibly kind and motivating comments. i am even more excited about continuing on after reading these. thank you!!!ReplyDelete
HI there Suzanne!... The concept is really interesting... and already... the first two seem to be "in conversation"... and hardly seem isolated. "Getting the cold shoulder treatment"... is what I read here! HA HA!! I talk to my Self lots... and get that a lot from my "Other"! HA HA!!ReplyDelete
Look forward to what transpires! A great start... with good painterly likenesses... despite the digital input!
Loving this one - beautiful model - can't wait to see where you are taking it!!ReplyDelete
Another clever idea! she has such a strong and interesting face, and I like your painterly aproach too, looking forward to seeing all her alter-egos.ReplyDelete
Wow, Suzanne, let me chime in with how terrific this is. You're such a wonderful painter.ReplyDelete
