She Sits and Thinks

I actually painted this last weekend, but never really got around to taking pictures of it until today. I'm quite happy with the play on shadows. Often, I am very scared to be dramatic with my shadows, especially on faces, but here I just let go of my hesitation and went for it. I'm quite happy with the result and I hope to do more portraits in the near future.

I just listed this item on Etsy, so you can buy it (and view more pictures) here.

Materials: Acrylic paint, gesso, 9 x 9 x .5 inch wood.
