Lisandra

lisandra_1

I framed Lisandra in a wooded area, and wanted to express a confident yet pensive pose for this painting. I hope that by directing her to look slightly upward and to the left that I accomplished this effect. I softened the sylvan background by applying the paint in small dot-like stabbing strokes, so as not to detract from the central figure. However I was careful to make the background clear enough so that one can recognize the surroundings for what they are.
