Paintings and Prose: a personal exploration of creativity.

Another acrylic. This woman caught my eye at the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts. She seemed to exude a sense of contented joy. I loved the hair and her smile so I asked if I could take a few pictures. The orange you see peeking through is for the most part the underpainting that I had painted over the whole canvas. As I worked I let it show through which created a nice harmony. I was drawn to her hair and its cast shadows. The texture in the background mimics this vertical aspect. I really enjoyed painting this one.
