Amira Revisited


About a year ago I completed two portraits of a girl named Amira. The first was done using colored pencil on panel, and the second was done using colored pencil and water soluble pastel on sanded board. I recently decided to revisit the subject, and the finished painting is shown above (12" x 16", oil on board).

This portrait is beautiful. But I have to say that I hadn't seen your work on cp's. You master that medium too. Amazing work...
Best regards,
Carolina

I haven't stopped by in a while and I've missed quite a bit! Love this painting, as well as Storyteller. The storyteller's pose is great. It looks so impromtu and candid. Beautiful work.
