Red Jacket (Michelle), by Barbara Trzcinski
Red Jacket (Michelle), by Barbara Trzcinski, 16" x 12", Oil, Framed (22.75" x 18.75")
My aim in this work was to paint Michelle with expressiveness and immediacy. Anytime I’m working with a figure it’s important to capture the gesture and weight of the body. The integrity of the model’s physical presence helps to communicate the temperament of this figurative painting.
Curated Description: Red Jacket (Michelle) is a realistic oil portrait. A rich palette and thick brushstrokes combine with surprising detail that captures the emotion in the young woman's face and an uneasy energy in her pose.
