Artwork > Figure Paintings and Portraits

When Courtney sat for this painting she had just come off a house painting job and the colors on her shorts, shirt and skin transformed her into a walking Pollock. She was a mess of pastel pinks, blues and yellows. I sat below her, the angle showing the power of her figure, and I tried to paint her in the painterly style of the shorts she wore.
