    contemplation

    Back to oil and back to attractive women for me. I loosely used a reference photo of Rachel Weisz (I enjoyed her in the "Mummy" movies) but tried to establish my own take on it. Oil, knife and eraser...

    As always, C&C welcome and appreciated.

    As I am somewhat enamoured with female faces, I feel I can say with confidence that this is absolutely superb!

    Pretty cool!

    Has the surface feel that reminds me a bit of a worked clay bust. It's not smooth like one would expect of a beautiful woman normally. Yet it has an artistic quality that has great merit and potential. In sculpture it's pretty commonly done.

    Nice twinkle in her eye. When that's a key feature, it says much about the personality of the sitter. There's emotion.

    I went to look up what the definition of "dramatic" is and this is what I found:

    dramatic dra-mat-ic

    1.of, pertaining to, or possessing drama.
    2.striking; impressive.
    3.ArtRage forum member, jbyrjbyr1's painting "Contemplation" - a portrait painting of Rachel Weisz done in ArtRage.


    I don't think I need to elaborate anymore of my feelings of this one, JB.....it is just that dramatic in every way. Love it!!!

    Now you're just getting scary good at this, JB, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. Wow.

    Great likeness, confident and tasty strokes and ... above all, fantastic the way she emerges from darkness capturing the light beam coming down on her, a vague Caravaggio's reminiscence ...
