Witness the Birth of an Expressionist Portrait: A Work in Progress

This (yet) untitled acrylic painting is a step-by-step exploration of figurative expressionism, and I'd love for you to witness its evolution! The first iteration was a mere mutter – a basic web of strokes that outlined the woman's form and spirit. As I ventured into the second stage, washes of muted hues began to breathe life into the canvas, giving the figure a more defined presence. But now, in iterations three and four, the work explodes with vibrant energy! Bold strokes and a fiery palette dominate the composition, revealing the woman's inner strength and raw emotion. Thus is the transformation from a wisp of an idea to a powerful visual statement! Take a look at the attached sequence of the painting's progress – what story do the colors tell you? Does the woman's spirit seem to ignite as the colors become bolder? Join me on this artistic journey and let's see where this portrait leads!
