Red Hair II

red hair II experimental

An experimental evening. Another painting of Kate, this time face on. A much more aggressive application of paint, which was great fun! It brings a random element to the process which is difficult to keep control. Having said that, it was a bit like a demo without the chat. So I was able to concentrate better and do more in the same time.

  1. Your experiments are so interesting David – this one in particular. The style is deliberate, well-placed strokes – I like the results very much.

    • Thanks again Mary! I’m glad to hear it. I am sure I am sacrificing something by not having a brand style but I can’t help playing around a bit to see what happens.

      • So funny, have you noticed my brand style? There isn’t one ~ would love to graduate toward a particular style, but I’m so young as an artist I hope that it comes at some point.

      • Ha! It surely will. Paint in a thousand styles and if you live long enough, the whittling process will work to leave you with a finely honed technique!

  2. Beautiful portrait. Love the rough layers.

  3. Wonderful! Refreshing and lively, but Kate still has that great calm, even gaze…. 🙂

    • I don’t know what I’d paint without her! She ain’t getting a rest from it either, I have a large character portrait on the cards in the next month or so!

  4. Even lovelier than the last

  5. Love the brushwork and loose nature of this portrait. I find myself wanting to continue looking at it to see what else I can find.
