Created by the student at 17 years old

My family seldom poses for me, so creating this piece of my mother and sister was an opportunity to explore themes of familial connectedness. I wanted the structure to convey their closeness with the repeating angles and the flowing shape of the light mass. This started as a graphite and crayon drawing, then was painted over with amber shellac and the highlights and shadows were heightened with oil paint.
