"Encounter" - New Work by Julie Snyder

Notes from the artist, Julie Snyder:

"I met this model at one of my art openings. I was immediately caught by her beauty, sense of style and her poise. I painted her here caught mid conversation with someone off-stage. I had to sit in the dark to paint this model, because I wanted to capture the effect of the light. Although in shadow, light bounced around and I saw cool lights reflected on her skin tones. The warm light flooded her face, creating a halo around her hair. The same light backlit her hand, making it almost translucent."
