Bedouin Features / Oil on boxed canvas
A close cropped portrait of Bedouin features make this an intimate and somewhat haunting image / study by Trevor. The different language of brush strokes on this canvas make it an exciting and dramatic rhythmic work of art. Painted on a box canvas in an immediate and direct style, or Alla Prima. The diagonal pattern of brushwork throughout the whole canvas creates a flow for the viewers eye interrupted now and then by more upright directions. Dark and light zones move across the work leading the eye over the facial features. Lastly, the blue running down the left hand side not only delineates the edge but also serves as a reminder of the nationality of the subject.
