Belle

Christine Obers

While, undoubtedly, superb draftsmanship plays a great role in rendering this animal portrait life-like, the artist assuredly imbues contemplation, character and mood in the subject. There is a beautiful light that illumines the edge, forelock and adjacent background and softly rakes across the forms and musculature. The richly saturated color against a varying neutral background is simply stunning. ~ Robert Carsten
