The brown eyed girl (2018) (sold)

A commission for a classic portrait. I focused on the complexion of the beautiful young woman that is from indonesian and dutch origin, showing a great mixture of madder red, burnt sienna, green, purple, yellow and blue hues in her face. I decided to put the stress on the face and the hands and therefor asked her to wear something dark. It’s a hint to dutch masters of the 17th century that did the same in order to draw the attention to the facial and manual expressions.
