An atmospheric painting of a woman’s face cast in deepening purple shadows against a cold starry night. I used artists’ grade oil paint on a stretched fine grained linen canvas. I employed blues, purples, dark reds and yellow ochre in layers of glazes to give the image depth and make the colours glow
This picture has been painted on the sides so it is ready to hang without a frame if you prefer. A coat of retouching varnish has been applied to protect the paint surface. The work is signed on the front. An indexed certificate of authenticity is attached to the back to prove that it’s an original work.
