Figurative & Portrait
Bebe Landers figurative paintings are full of subtle emotion and relationships, showing visual non verbal cues to behavior. These days we are bombarded with fast imagery, we digest in split micro seconds and move on. These paintings ask you to slow down and look longer. There are multiple levels of communication in each image.
Each painting tells a story about the person portrayed, through subject and composition created with many layers of oil paint & glazes, harmonic color schemes and the poetry of textured energetic brushstrokes.
Each painting takes a minimum of three weeks to complete. Many hours of concentration, thought, emotion, design and skillful rendering produce the resultant glowing, living story.
