I was drawn to the incredibly soft, smooth looking skin on this young lady's face. I painted the dress loosely to contrast with the polished quality on the face and arms.
Rebecca Plante was born 15 July 1990 in Seattle, Washington. After a formative childhood in swampy Charleston, South Carolina, she graduated from the prestigious Academic Magnet High School, and went on to attend The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, and Tufts University, simultaneously earning a BA and BFA. Her work centers on shop cats, antiquated technology, snacks, and things she finds on the ground. She likes to think that her dual interests in painting and the human psyche are reflected in her work, and occasionally fancies herself a latter-day Lucien Freud. But with fewer children. In addition to painting for fun and profit, she also co-runs a fashion line, known as PLANTE.
