African power woman


About the painting
In my painting career, I have often sketched and painted the back of a woman, because I am really fascinated by the upper back of a woman. I love the bone structure. The last years I produced several paintings showing the back of a woman. This is the first painting that was made when I started with Amsterdam Blend. This is also where the style with the different layers started and where I really developed my way of painting. It is one of my most valuable pieces that I recently sold. Of course it is possible to make a similar piece if you are interested in it.



Linen canvas - 100 x 100
