Woman in Hijab Arch

Many of the arches of Islamic architecture echo the shape of the upper body of the human form.  Here I have placed a face on that arch with this sketch in acrylics.   There is an example of an arch below the painting.

Panamanian Woman as Goth

This is another version of my Panamanian friend.  She was one of our Spanish teachers – they called them facilitators as they did not do formal teaching as much as immersion.  Always friendly and in a great mood.  It was only in the past year I learned she had trained as a model and was so good in front of a camera.

Go, Figures | Clothed and naked model painting

Go, Figures

 

Go, Figures started life as a regular modeling session but in acrylics, not the usual way to go.  It evolved into this.  The background is inspired by František Kupka’s Mme Kupka (1910). He was a Czech artist and she his wife. I saw the painting at the Nieu Gallery in NYC, at a special exhibit that included some of Klimt’s famous paintings.
