Painting of the Day: "Rafa"

"Rafa" by Gabriel Moreno.


  The juxtaposition of the monochrome of the model against the colours of the cloth is what made me like this piece. What is the main subject in this painting? Is it the girl, or the cloth? As artists, we're taught to place details in the main subject, so did the artist intentionally place details in the cloth? The artist has a background in fashion illustration, perhaps that might be the reason. I also loved the detail of a tattoo on the girl's left arm, and the beautiful flourish of lines that represent her hair.
