Portrait of Julia

Honorable Mention
The Artists Magazine Competition

Oil Colour on Linen Canvas ~ 34 x 26 inches.

Julia is a beautiful little girl – sweet, kind and sensitive. Marvin wanted to highlight her softness and optimistic gaze in this full-length portrait.

The floral motif ties Julia to the background while, the subdued color palette and value structure simultaneously project her forward, emphasizing the illusion of space and atmosphere. The subtly painted details, like the hands, feet and pillows,  enhance, without distracting, the overall composition which focuses on her exquisite facial features and life-like demeanor.
