HAVE A SPECIAL PORTRAIT PAINTED FOR CHRISTMAS


SHERRI
The impressionistic background of this painting ensures that the focus of attention is on the detailed subject. The wind-blown hair adds life and excitement to the piece and, although the hair is blown into the background in an impressionistic style, this brings an air of realism to the artwork. In reality, the eye cannot focus on the moving hair and to paint each strand of hair in a realistic style would be unnatural and contrived. Even a simple portrait of a girl reading such as this one can be full of life, excitement, drama, movement.
