Sam Arnholtz | “Ties that Bind”

This media file is attached to: Painting / Watercolor

In this piece, I attempted my largest portrait painting done to date. Using oils in bright colors, I rendered a portrait of a friend of mine who modeled rope ties in a personal photography shoot. Mixing an abstract background with intense colored lighting and shading to create a striking image related to female sexuality.
