ABOUT THIS PAINTING I painted this colorful portrait in studio from real life. Becky, the model, posed for two sessions, wearing red pants and a beautiful cream-color jacket before a mustard yellow background. I painted wet on wet in classic allaprima technique and focused on rendering the richness of the reflexive light on her jacket. Warms and cools mingle to create a dynamic effect in the whites. A colorful and vivid portrait to offer as a gift or hang in your home.

She grew up in the heart of the Latin Quarter in Paris, influenced by the intellectual and academic scene of the area. From her mother, she inherited an early predilection for Arts and the inspirational charisma of family artists. In college, she studied Literature and Philosophy before attending graduate studies in business. After studying art privately in Paris, NYC, San Francisco and Boston, she grew a passion for Plein Air painting and Allaprima painting techniques. She developed a special interest in texture contrast where soft meets harsh and delicate meets blunt. Influenced by artists such as Edward Hopper and Edouard Manet, she is admirative of their unmatched ability to simplify shapes, and juxtapose contrasting values without blending. Currently she lives and works in Boston and Cambridge, MA. She won the First prize at Revere Beach Art Festival in 2016.
