This is one of my favorite oil wash on canvas pieces to date! I wanted to keep the highlights and shadows to a minimum, allowing the beauty and subtlety of the initial flowing paint to capture the curves of this model. She is a professional dancer, and even at rest you get the feeling that she is about to explode into movement! The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.
Patrick Soper paints works that explore line, texture and the female body. In his paintings, he explores the texture of paint and different color combinations. Many of his pieces mix flesh tones with other colors to add interest. When he's not making art, he enjoys traveling, fishing, reading, and going to outdoor music festivals.
