THIS IS A PORTRAIT STUDY OF THE BEAUTIFUL DARK SKINNED MODEL, GIANNINA  ANTONETTE.

THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN BY CHRIS SCHOONOVER FOR YEN MAGAZINE.

I LOVE HER SKIN TONE AND THE FACT THAT SHE SHAVES HER HEAD, NO JEWELERY, MINIMUM MAKE UP, NO HAIR AND STILL SHE IS FEMININE, THE SHAPE OF HER HEAD RESEMPLES A STATUE, ALMOST PERFECT PROPORTIONS. JUST BEAUTIFUL.

FOR SOMETIME NOW I EXPERIMENT WITH DARK SKIN, I AM INTO FLESH TONES IN GENERAL AND WANT TO CREATE A SERIES OF PORTRAITS FROM THE FAIREST ALBINO PINK FLESH TO DARKEST DEEP BROWNS OF THE AFRICAN SKIN. I WANT TO KEEP THE DETAIL TO A MINIMUM AND CREATE A MAT OPAQUE PAINT QUALITY WITH VISIBLE BRUSH STROKES AND DISTRINQUISHED SHADOW-LIGHT RELATIONSHIP.

 

MATERIALS: ARTIST QUALITY ACRYLIC PAINT ON COTTON CANVAS.

DIMENSION:  XXXXXXXCM
