The Couch

The Couch
26 x 36 in
Oil on canvas

This is my latest finished piece: a self-portrait. In this painting, I aimed to represent an aspect of my emotional self, rather than just my physical appearance. I used three different ways of handling the paint to describe unique forms. The composition was inspired by a small, less well-known Degas painting. It is an experiment, a step forward.
