Artist Sherri Aldawood painted her model, Cecil, from life in his native Apache clothes and make-up. She used a palette knife to achieve the classic, textured effect of the background. Warm light from the left shines across the subject's face, giving him a timeless nobility.
Sherri Aldawood didn't intend to always paint flowers, but over time her love of gardens started to permeate her art. She focuses on the light and color of the flowers on the canvas. Sherri prefers alla prima, working with wet layers of paint instead of letting them dry. She keeps the paint as wet as possible by using walnut and clove oil to extend the drying time.
