Sam Patterson-Smith
Portrait of a Woman in a Red Dress



I love doing portraits, exploring the forms, shapes and lines that make up a human continue to intrigue me greatly. I seem to always struggle with the female form though, at least i feel that i do. In my many variations of portraits both abstract and realistic i keep finding that i am more inclined and able to draw and paint the male form, i still dont know why this is but perhaps it is because i see a male form in the mirror every morning, Maybe constant exposure to that makes the lines and shapes that compose a masculine figure are easier to express. What are your thoughts on this idea? The female form both eludes and interests me even further as i explore different methods of creating figures, hopefully one day i will reach a point where i can paint them with as much as as i do other portraits. I would love to be able to pick up a pen and create one of my spontaneous abstract line portraits that are more feminine than masculine for a change. Practice makes perfect i suppose, this painting is another step in my exploration of the female form.
