The inspiration for this painting was my model, Lexie, taking this pose with her face in the sofa pillow. It appeared that she was in despair, as if things just hadn't worked out for her. (And maybe she was tired of posing? Could that possibly be?) Thanks so much for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
