Here’s my latest painting Quiet Confidence – Ksenia, produced in collaboration with Sergey Gladky.
Quiet Confidence is the ninth fine art figurative oil painting in my series entitled ‘Romantic Pursuits’ of which 5 have sold and the other 3 are currently on exhibition duty in Taipei.
She’s created on a 91cm x 61cm stretched cotton canvas using a knife, as is my trademark technique, in two layers to allow the sweeping knife strokes of the black background to influence the foreground subject knife strokes in a contemporary realism. The chiaroscuro technique, minimalist background and lighting adds to the atmosphere without distracting from the subject. The lady is simply beautiful and elegant. It’s a superb composition, full of passion, drama and emotion. She’s so confident, relaxed and yet alluring in her poise. Why is she there? Who is she waiting for? That would be telling…
I hope you like it? absolutely love it and the image doesn’t do the original justice!
