Big Girl at the Bar


Oil on board 24 x 36″

This was the biggest painting I had ever attempted.  She is based on a 16th century portrait ( I am a big fan of Lucas Cranach) and the idea was to paint someone who may have been alive 500 years ago but who could just as easily pass for a modern woman. After all, nothing much has changed…(except skin care, dentistry, antibiotics, contact lenses, hair dye etc etc)
