Face 5, oil portrait in fauvism style

Here's another portrait in the fauvism style. The model, in this case, is my daughter, Suzanne. I liked the naturalness of her pose as she was leaning back on the couch. I probably could have pushed the colors a little more. I think I read somewhere that portrait subjects should not have their teeth showing. I like the full smile in this one, so to heck with that rule.

As a fledgling artist, I envy your ability to render the human form (or any part thereof) so that it's recognizable. I like the notion of pushing the colors, as you have done. It is so expressive.

Hey Carol! Nice work. I have to say that I like the abstracts you've done recently. Good work.
