Brave Face | War Paint Series
|Brave Face, oil on canvas by Paul Richmond|
I'm back in the studio and painting with a vengeance! Here's the first piece in my new War Paint series -- an expressive exploration of strength, masculinity, and courage. I am inspired by the variety of ways in which people summon their inner strength to prepare for battle, and through this body of work, I hope to expand upon the notion of what "being tough" really means.
Brave Face is an oil painting on canvas that measure 24" x 30." The original painting and prints are available through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery HERE.
Additional print sizes are available in my online store HERE.
A big thank you to the fantastic models who were willing to get messy during the photo shoot for this series: Edwin Clark, Aaron Anderson, Brian Williams, and Patrick Butler!
