Jamaican Woman by Theresa Oats
This beautiful young woman who posed for our life drawing group back in the 1990's struck us as both exotic and somber. Word had it that she was from Jamaica originally, but later, a friend who once lived in that part of the world said her features are not typical for that area.
Most everyone came up with an interesting piece of art because her chiseled features highlighted by the sheen of her complexion inspired creativity.
I painted in oils on canvas paper from life.
An fellow artist named 'Rose' purchased it while it was on exhibit at a local gallery.
