Wicked Women

On the weekend I saw the ‘Wicked Women’ exhibition at the Sydney Justice and Police museum. When watching the artist’s interview I took an interest in her comments about not using black in her oil paintings as it ‘kills off other colours’. Instead, colours are built up to give the depth. The vibrant colours of these portraits have a lot of energy and captured the personalities of her subjects. These women are strong 🙂

I liked the use of vintage posters as inspiration, and the use of props and posing to add drama. I enjoy portraiture and will think about all these things when I work on portraits in the future.
