In this painting, my aim was to use minimal marks to capture a maximum of information about the model’s changing moods. I began with a stick and crimson acrylic paint in order to record each gesture, and then one by one I added layers of color - first, golden yellow, and then other brilliant fluid acrylics. Painted on archival paper, this piece needs to be framed for display.
