Waiting

2019, Oil on canvas, 61 x 76 cm

In this oil painting of a woman in a dark velvet dress, the sitter’s pose and distant gaze allude to a sense of wait, expectation and resignation. Phthalo Blue was the mostly used colour in this portrait, both in the vibrant turquoise background and the navy velvet dress, in contrast with the warm skin tones of the sitter. Painted from life from six sittings.
