'Woman in Blue' - Michael Newberry

Newberry, 1981.


  1. That is an interesting pose - almost uncomfortable with the idea of being a portrait. I'm not quite sure if I like the whole effect; but it certainly makes you wonder why.

  2. She looks cold. I like it!

  3. what i done i painted her in blue in photoshop and she look ok except that claw hand with the short fingers, when i get bakck to home one day i show you much better picture on my site, like real girls mn things, on the arm

  4. This was Newberry in his 'Rembrandt' period. Lots of shadow, from which figures with depth and three-dimensions emerge into the light.

    At life-size that effect is truly stunning.
