Amanda by Peter Sit in Toronto, Canada

Peter Sit’s figure work is a trove of inspiration for those that would like to hone their skills in this type of art. There are so many subtle details that take years to get right that are in every piece he does.

I chose the above painting to feature here on the gallery because it showcases many of those subtle details. You can feel where the weight of the subject is leaning on the chair, the shoulders are every so slightly tilted, the foot under the leg raising the knee. I also appreciate how stark the shadows are on the fabric.
