The Balcony, figurative painting, woman in art, beach, female figure, contemporary women artists

The Balcony, acrylic on canvas, 24" x 30"
SOLD to a collector in Massachusetts


Here's my earlier study of a woman standing serenely on one leg. I love the pose because the body must be perfectly centered in order to achieve balance. No part is quite at rest, yet the figure appears relaxed and casual. The photo colors seem off so: dress is dark purple, water dark turquoise, skirt hem bright pink, hairband and town rust red, skin warm dark and the tile dark yellow, its shadows like Dijon mustard - well, this is France!
