Portrait of Kristen by Frances Kuta

Kristen is a local beauty that I saw and thought..."oh...she would be so much fun to paint!" In fact I asked if she would sit for us gals in the Representational Art League and she agreed. You can see this painting of Kristen and several others at Studio S this coming Arts Alive April 2nd.
11" x 14" oil on canvas Raymar panel.


  1. Love the humanity you imbrued in her expression.
    What a beautiful and touching portrait.

  2. so glad to see this, Frances, cuz I'm doing a portrait in the same lighting...face in shadow with rim lighting etc. and this is really helping me. You're just too good, girl!

  3. thanks gang :)....alicia...she had the rim light on front and big reflected light on the back because she was sitting by white was really neat...
