It's been amazing to watch this painting evolve. Check out Brian's feed for all of the progress shots!
From @brianoneillartist ・・・ When I got into my art studio this morning, my usual tradition of making a latte, and I turned around and saw her from the other room with morning light beaming in! Work in progress, 60 x 36“, oil. I am so in love with the subtle opal-tones in this gorgeous kimono and beautiful woman. @jessemoo This painting will transform greatly once I add texture, metal leaf, and continue to Obscura an abstract the background. The tension and harmony created between objective realism and abstraction is something that I adore working with. #art#artist#artstudio#artistatwork#kimono#figurepainting#creativeuprising#dowhatmakesyouhappy#dowhatyoulove#create#grateful
I’m on a roll with the gouache portraits these days 😬, here’s another one today. For this portrait, I painted right away without the usual pencil sketch. It was quite liberating frankly.. I’ll try to video the process next time.
