Oil on Canvas
The painting feels both light and dark. From a visual standpoint and from a metaphorical one. The model’s expression is bold with a subtle aggression but it was handled with small, delicate brush strokes.
There’s a sense of security with the pose. An acceptance of herself. The crown is barely seen over her big hair as if it were taking a back seat to the model’s demeanor.
The crown doesn’t prove her power, she does.
