Romain, 2023, oil on Belgium linen, 30.48 x 40.64
This painting is the result of a life class with 23 year-old Romain from Bordeaux France as our subject. Romain was travelling the world, studying in Australia, and working as an artist model to earn his way.
Romain exuded a youthful innocence and keen intelligence, plus possessed a sunny disposition. These traits I’ve attempted to capture in this work.
