Rachel the Radient

Early on back in high school, I used make up a name for each of my contacts on my phone. I had names like Jaden the Maiden, Merrie my Fairy, Abe the Babe, Mom da Bomb, Dad the Rad--and this is a figure painting of my sister, Rachel the Radiant. I thought it was an appropriate time to use that cleverly thought out name again.... ;)
I used oils and added a little palette knifing in the background. She patiently posed for me over a period of 2 hours or so as I took a gazillion reference photos... She's amazing. And obviously radiant!
