Laura in Red (20x16 inches, framed)
Oil on canvas, 2015, Titus Castanza. Signed lower right. Framed.
Done in my studio with a live model. This painting is a good example of knowing what not to paint, practicing restraint. I like how I chose to leave the pink blanket a flat transparent shape––it makes everything else look even more detailed, thick, and dimensional. The pink really makes the painting sing and come to life.
