Female Basketball Player (SOLD)
30x48 in acrylic on canvas
In this painting I wanted to capture the intensity and presence a female athlete possesses. I sought to accomplish this through the composition and body posture of the figure, the direct confrontational gaze with witch she confronts the audience, and through the use of bold brush strokes and strong colors. Through this style I hoped to capture a quality in athletic women that the camera misses.
