Caitriona

Oil Pastel on Paper – 11.7 x 16.5

This is a portrait I did of my sister Caitriona using oil pastels. I really like working with oil pastels because I can achieve deep and rich skin tones as well as a good amount of detail, though the trade-off is the ability to show interesting brushwork. The texture is subtle and buttery. This painting is bold and captures Caitriona’s confidence.
