The Disappointed.

The Disappointed. Oil on prepared wood. 30 x 60 cm.
The model looked a little unhappy, which I amplified and skewed.
When someone said she looked a little like an absinthe drinker,
I thought to add a hazy still life in the background.
There is a fair bit of distortion going on in the image,
both in colour and proportion.
A melancholy air pervades.
Made at a class tutored by John Close, in London.

From the left:

2. The work without a frame.
3. & 4. Details of the head.
5. Detail of the still life.
