Ukrainian Princess

Oil on Copper Panel

11 ″ by 8 1/2″  

After seeing a gorgeous Renaissance painting of a young woman in profile at a museum exhibit, I was inspired to paint my own of Oksana, a model from Ukraine. Her hair, which blends into the background, was specially braided for the modeling session. The antique earring was highly glazed with epoxide oil. This portrait was painted directly on the copper panel with no priming.
