Summer (Miguel), by Barbara Trzcinski, 40" x 30", Oil, Unframed
I asked Miguel to come to the studio in whatever clothes he was wearing that day. In he walks, the personification of summer, in the softest pastel blue and pink. I set out to capture the freshness of that sitting. Everything about this figurative painting is light and open.
Curated Description: Summer (Miguel) is a realistic figural painting done with a pale palette of oil on canvas. The soft texture of the figure and the calm hues contrast with drama of the stretching shadows in the background. Both aspects contribute to the depth and realism of the portrait.
