Alice Reading A Book painting by Andrew Daniel

My wife gets such an intense look of concentration when she is reading. She hates it when I paint the furrow in her brow! I felt compelled though because of the general intensity of the pose!

I tried really opening up as I painted the piece, imagining I was drawing with the brush. Trying not to edit my impulses and create some immediacy.

This is an original oil painting on canvas panel. It measures 10" x 8" (25cm x 20cm), signed by the artist. It is for sale in my Online Shop.


  1. What a thorough job you did of conveying an aggravated
    human being. Even the plant behind her supports the mood
    expressed on her face.her

  2. Sensitive, behind the furrowed brow I see lovely liquid brown eyes. her mouth and chin are beautifully painted. Love this portrait. Boochever portrait competition submissions end soon...here's the link: https://www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=796
