Silver and Gold

Silver & Gold 11x14

Here is a figure piece from earlier this year titled "Silver and Gold" 11x14. I really like the connection that's made when painting a figure. It seems that every shape and line when represented honestly convey the models mood, attitude, comfort or in this piece possibly discomfort. Standing, holding a pose for hours can cause you to tense up in order not to slouch or shift too far from the starting pose. Frequent breaks are needed for sure. I admire anyone who has the ability to do this job, and the guts to boot! I think this piece shows that tension in the pose.
