The Mirror, figurative oil painting, woman, female figure, beach, Marie Fox

The Mirror,  20" x 24", oil on canvas SOLD

This painting pleases me because it's simpler than most I do. I'm trying to reduce detail without eliminating the visual interest that detail provides. I do like the subject of a woman and her reflection - an ancient theme. The figure's profile view also reminds me of Egyptian art which I love.

This was a fun one to paint in that I was trying to restrict my colors and details, and to emphasize form. (But I do love color so some are bright.) On the figure I used many small strokes following the shape of the body. It's a true luxury to sit making small brush strokes around an arm or torso, searching for and evoking form. The process reminds me of working with egg tempera. In this painting, there seems to be a story too. -->
