"Woman In Purple", original painting, Size: 18 x 24 inches ( 46cm x 61cm),

painted in ink and acrylic paint on heavy weight, acid free water color paper


Dramatic, abstract expressionist portrait of a woman in rich, vibrant Fauve colors, inspired by the abstract portraits of women by Picasso.  This painting has many different tones of blue and purple, green and yellow colors.

It is a very striking painting/drawing. The ink line drawing is spontaneous and raw and very expressive. The acrylic paint is bright and vibrant and gives the painting texture. The heavy weight paper shows through in many places providing additional texture and interest. This painting is on paper so you will have to have it framed (it is sold without a frame).
