Sage by jialu Sage by jialu
Jia Lu, Sage (2011), oil on canvas, 48x48 inches (detail).

The same model as my 1998 work Flight, but this painting shows how much more I've learned about painting in the last twelve years. The brushwork is looser, the colours more subtle and varied, and I've allowed parts of the painting to drift out of focus. This is a photograph off my easel of the work in progress. I'll re-post when I have a good scan made.

Thanks for all your comments! The model was a student of mine, who now lives with his wife in the south of France, growing Muscat grapes and riding his bicycle across the countryside.

I'm very inspired by the poise and movement here, and the use of color! All of your works are captivating, but this one especially struck me.

This is really beautiful! And I admire you for this beacause I think drawing old people, especially men, is really hard.
