Figure Study, 2016
By Kristen Coates
Pencil on canvas
36"H x 24"
From the private collection of Kristen Coates
I do not do a lot of figures, but I do believe in knowing when a piece is finished even if it is not thick with paint. This was a quick study about composition and small strokes that make the piece feel as though the subject has been captured. The small mouth, a lock of hair or the arch of a foot. It's all there.
