My final concentration piece! When deciding what to do for my final piece, I knew I wanted to do something different and really branch out. I decided on this picture because I wanted to challenge myself with painting a person, which I had never done before in oil paint. I was also particularly drawn to the cool color scheme, with so much blue, and the complementary color of red in various shades. I loved the way the light created lights and shadows, as well as the negative spaces that the furniture and plants created. I am glad that I was able to challenge myself with this piece.
