painting inspirations

once when i was flipping through old magazines in my doctor's office, i came across this photograph that richard avedon had shot of barbra streisand. i liked the shapes her body makes in each pose, so i made a rough sketch on some scratch paper and tucked it away in a file. today i found the sketch and decided to paint it...here is my interpretation of this photo in acrylic, 6"x6".

  1. What a fun painting...I love how you used the different colors instead of black and white. The gold really makes it pop!

    Great piece.

  2. this is really good Lisa. I like the separations of the body done with color and spaces. Positive and negative spaces are important. Sammie checks your blog daily, she first described this..so here I am, commenting. Love ya'
