Portrait in Oil of a Young Woman by Cathyann Burgess

Emily©2011 14 x 11 oil on canvas

What I try to convey in my paintings is a love for the contemplative spirit, those introspective moments when a subject is unaware of being seen. I like to think of myself as a contemporary realist who prefers to paint from life and is more colorist than tonal painter. Painting from life reveals the whole truth, which is why I believe it is the best way to perceive and interpret the subject.
