ABOUT THIS PAINTING
This portrait is an original Oil Painting on canvas I painted in the studio from life. The male model is sitting on a stool against a bright red background. His jet black hair contrasts sharply with the vibrant red background. The features of the face are represented in the simplest fashion in allaprima technique (wet paint on wet paint). The light coming from the left hand side of the model creates sharp contrasts between the bright bust and warm and cools shadows on the right hand side.

Carole Nataf was born in Paris in 1989. 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…
