Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

My Colored Portrait series was a practice for me to differentiate the darker areas and lighter areas on human figures, without using flesh tones. I studied female figures and faces and different portraiture to learn how to paint proportions accurately. Using oil paint, I choose a bold color to be the tone of the figure and complement the background with an equally bold color or the same color. This series was my first time painting people/faces.
