Brandywine

This is a newer painting. A lot of glare is showing up in this picture but you get the idea. I wanted a warm face to contrast with a very cool background. I also was trying to get a loose style in the background to compliment the more finished face.
This is oil on board 12"x24".

The rough background works well. The whole painting is really beautiful.

Brilliant anyway? Brilliant always! The background styling is brilliantly executed man. Great stuff as usual!

Thanks for comment and thanks for stopping by!:))

I like this rather strange juxtaposition a lot! You went for dislocation, in a way, rather than integrating her with the background. The result is an intriguing painting.
