Ellen Eagle | Portrait Painter | American Painter

Ellen Eagle is a portrait painter from the U.S. and has been graduated in drawing at California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, California.
Artist Statement:
“I paint portraits in pastel. My portraits evolve slowly, during a series of sittings. I don't like to talk much when I work. I like my model to almost forget I am there. Inevitably, during the course of the sittings as the model drifts deeper into his or her own thoughts, he or she experiences deeply felt emotions. 

And though I respond to the body's genuine expression of those emotions, I am aware that he or she is engaged in private thoughts to which I am not privy.
I strive to express my response through acute observation. Fidelity to my subject's particular qualities is very important to me. Of course, I see through the filter of my own temperament.
I always work in natural light. The most exquisite expression of light I have seen is in the radiance of flesh. The timeless and fleeting human subject as seen in the eternal and everchanging natural light.”
