Artist of the Week
Karan AlanThis weeks spotlight has been a long time in the making as we've all watched "Mother" develop over the course of many months. Mother has been with us almost every week since last spring, slowly coming to life through the incredible talent of her daughter.

Planning a Composition:
Karan spends much time planning out the composition of her canvas. Before drawing mother she utilized the idea of the golden proportion to aesthetically align the focal points in her painting.

Painting in detail with thoughtful consideration to the time period in which the photo was taken.
After months of carting mother to and from class, stressing over the correct color palette, worrying about the shapes, shadows and textures of mothers skin, hair and clothing all while making sure the highlights and focal points followed the guidelines of the golden triangle, Karan signs her name to momma's painting. Champagne quickly followed to celebrate the patient love and devotion of a daughter to her mother.
