Sarah, 18" x 14", oil on linen

Sarah teaches the Fundamentals of Art class at the Academy.

Sarah asked whether she should pose with her glasses off to help students paint her. I told the students that we should paint her the way she generally looks, with her glasses on. Besides, it would be a good opportunity to paint the effect of glasses.

In this painting, I wanted to paint a "quiet" appearance with an uncomplicated flow of color composition surrounded by a large negative space.
