Portrait


This picture started out purely as an exercise in observation. As I continued working on it, I realized that I wanted to develop it further, but still keep the main focus on the process. I am personally very inspired by painters that make process a frank and visible part of their work; markmaking in itself can very often be sufficient subject matter. That's the reason I decided to omit the focal point here and leave the head out of this picture. Of course, I can go back and continue working on it, but if I do so it will inevitably become a portrait, which is not the intention with which I set out to paint this. The point here is simply observation.
