Nataya, Original Oil Painting, 5 x 7 inches
archival smooth gessoboard – SOLD

It’s beautiful Nataya again – this time she’s seven, such a fun age!    This portrait shows Nataya focused on her lap loom.  She is an expert weaver!

My challenge was capturing her look and I’m happy to say that I did it.  Portraiture is no small task.  It’s an out of control feeling most of the time with emphasis on value and shape until in the end, the art takes a turn, and finally resembles the person you’re painting.  I think that those who know Nataya will recognize her.
