Oil on Canvas
Guarded depicts a beautiful woman with boxing gloves. The model poses with the gloves on the side of her face as if she were guarding herself. The model stares aimlessly down in a contemplative state.
This piece was built up by first applying a dark tone on all the canvas by mixing ivory black with cadmium yellow (with acrylic paint). The thin paint was then pushed and pulled with a squeegee to create interesting textures which can be appreciated towards the lower half of the piece.
The face was slowly built up with oil paints. I wanted to emphasize the beautiful expression on the models face. To achieve this I dedicated time to the face and allowed the rest of the painting to be defined with quick solutions.
The result of the piece is that of a realistic and expressionistic approach.
