About "The Smoking Senorita"

In the early hours of the morning on New Years day, Christo came across this beautiful Spanish lady sitting next to a fire with friends on a beach in Cape Town sharing a cigar. Captivated by the light cast on her face by the glowing embers and the blue Cuban smoke drifting into her eyes he captured this chiaroscuro portrait.
"The Smoking Senorita" is very characteristic of the style when Christo Wolmarans works in Oil-Pastels where he has now carved his niche. In his quest for instant gratification, the negative space of the dark ground completes the picture for the viewer. With his loose expressive style in line work, a fresh realism is optically created.
