Oil on canvas, 12″x9″
This painting is a study of a sleeping man in a room with light pouring in, highlighting his back and the sheets on the bed. I wanted to present the warm colors of the body in contrast to the pale aqua tints of the surrounding room. I kept the brushwork quite loose and painterly while maintaining a high degree of realism.
I like the peaceful atmosphere of these sleeping male figure studies. I’m always trying to create a mood in my work and I feel like I captured calm and quiet in this one.
