“Saturday Morning”

“Saturday Morning” 90 x 130 cm (35.5″ x 51.2″.) Acrylic on canvas.

While I can never come close to create anything as beautiful as the human form, I try to share my perception in such a way as help the viewer see that same beauty in a different light, with a different set of eyes. 

I quite enjoy how the bright sun illuminates the scene, defining the figure while adding an almost marble-like tone to the skin and I’m rather pleased with the result. Much to the models surprise, I gave her red hair in this painting but it just seemed the right thing to do? A hair color closer to the models real color can be seen in the https://peterbaagoejepsen.com/2022/08/15/in-the-light/ depiction.

Neither is my ambition to imitate the function of a camera, because the camera already does that expertly, much faster and without compare. Instead I merely aim to share my respect and admiration for the endless variations of beauty I see in people around me.
