Acrylic on Acrylic Board (circa A3) (Unframed)
I thought it about time that from time to time, I moved away from, my ‘picture postcard’ images and tried to paint things that were more everyday. What in my mind I think of as ‘conversational pieces’. That is images that might be the sort of thing that I might see in my daily moving around. Figures in particular, not posed for a commission image, but just as they are, in situ.
This was my good lady at rest on a lazy afternoon. She had no idea I had snapped her on my ‘phone, so I felt it fitted the bill for what I was after.
I was particularly pleased with the painting of the fabric, especially the cotton top. I also felt that the features were pretty accurate. She personally doesn’t like the large knee which is foreshortened, but that’s just how she was reclining.
No posing here!
