"Wearing The Turban"

Oil on panel

A kindly gaze towards the viewer was the intention behind this work. Thick impasto paint illuminating the light areas, contrast the rich thin glazes supporting the image as a whole.

The subject’s hand is used as a device to help balance the image. This is a typical device which was used in 16th and 17th Century paintings of the Dutch and Flemish schools.
