Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

This was produced from a photoshoot with the model Carla Monaco. I took over 300 photos and this image was one of only 5 that I really liked.

I wanted to keep it painterly and was very conscious to not overwork it and simply fill it in. I'm happy with the result.

Whilst an element of realism is important, I try to move beyond artistic convention and avoid an image that is too predictable. Realism is not enough – what you take away and add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. I believe the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this.
