Aotd: “Girl in the Window” by Peter C Matthews

I haven’t posted an Art of the Day image for a while as I have been finishing up school, but I am now nearing the end and what to get this section going again. So todays painting is from Peter C Matthews, an artist out of South Africa. Most of his work is figural in a variety of mediums, with some landscapes and wildlife as well. “Girl in the Window” is based off a photo he found on the internet, and recreated in oil. The image is very mysterious and ghostly, and in a way has a tenebrous style to it. I would love to see Matthews do a whole series of portraits in this style.
