Portraits of Women

Some of these portraits of women are quick
sketches in dry media from short poses; others
arise from long portrait sittings that allow
for detailed studies of faces and drapery.
I use professional models; I rarely draw
friends or commissioned portraits because
I like to experiment free from constraints
and others' expectations.

My portraits of women aim for a synthesis of
form, media, and expression. I particularly
like to find and exaggerate the interesting
colors under the skin tones.



            For portraits of men, please
go to the
Portraits of Men exhibit.
For surreal portraits of
women in photography, visit
the
PHOTOGRAPHY gallery.

Dividing portraits from figures
is arbitrary.  To see figure
studies and figure drawings,
please go to the
Realistic &
Expressionist Figures
exhibit.
And many
more figures are
found in the
Abstract &
Decorative Figures
exhibit.
