2008 Acrylic on canvas 24 x 36 inches
"Maribel” is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by Citrus County Florida Artist Michael Arnold. "The subject is my daughter in law who won a pageant in her home country of the Philippines. The photo I used as reference was of her in her costume after winning. This painting was created using only burnt sienna and a touch of pthalo blue to darken the hair. I layered the burnt sienna over and over again to build up the darker tones and create depth. The lightest colors in the painting were accomplished using a single layer and the darker tones have up to fifteen thin layers of paint. This Michael Arnold original acrylic painting on canvas makes a bold statement on any wall where it is displayed. "Maribel" prints may be purchased here. The original painting of "Maribel" by award winning Florida artist Michael Arnold is not for sale. Check out the portrait painting of Maribel's husband here.
