King In I
King In I
20"x30" (50.8x76.2 cm)
Oil on Canvas
This is a painting of my nephew. He was visiting my studio and I asked him to pose for a couple of photos. I handed him a prop crown and asked him to pose with it anyway he wanted.
He proceeded to hold the crown and stared at it blankly. After a few seconds he decided to hold the crown by his side, with one hand and stared directly at the camera. I found the pose to be incredibly powerful and thought provoking.
I built this piece up a little differently than usual. I prioritized painting the face before working on the body or background. By the time I started working on the body and background, the portrait was almost complete.
I wanted the viewer to focus on my nephew’s face so I passed a brush on the body and background while the paint was wet in order to create a sort of haze effect.
The result is a piece that feels both realistic and expressionistic.
