Two Points Of View

Here are 2 portraits of Aku, a singer and an English teacher. They had been painted when I was teaching Art in Chendu, Sichuan, China.

 Aku 1. 38x56. 2006

The portraits are not very saturated, but I was merely interested in play of light and shadow. I found that the contrast of dark skinned and black dressed model against the white wall is extreemly interesting for painting.

It had been painted alla prima during 1 sitting, the whole thing is about 1,5 hour. ..and actually it was a demonstration for Chinese students.
