Shadowy Figure

12 x 12
oil on Ampersand panel
This painting was fun because of the great interplay of shadows, especially from the straw hat.  The sun was intense but her face was glowing from the gold reflections from the hat.


  1. Love this. You get so much personality in your portraits. I just love them.

    1. And I love that you love them! Thank you Maria!

  2. Terri, this is fabulous, beautifully painted, and I'm glad you had fun with it, too!

  3. She's beautiful! Love the warm glow on her forehead! This has to be the same "Radiant" girl. Another great one Terri!

  4. Yes it's my ex-coworker, a young nurse who could be a model! Thank you so much Cathy and congratulations on being the Spotlight Artist on Daily Paintworks! So proud of you!

  5. Terri, The glow on her face is just gorgeous!
    I "want" to know "how" you painted this?
