Contemporary Figurative Art by Susan K Boyle
In this abstract figurative painting my goal was to use a minimum of marks to capture a maximum amount of information about the model. I began with a stick and crimson acrylic paint to record the gestures and then one by one added layers of color - first, golden yellow, and then other brilliantly colored fluid acrylics.
