Acrylic on 14" x 17" bristol board
Artwork by Rob Schamberger, painted in 2021
Charlotte Flair has a new energy, a subtle new look, and a new attitude. She's got a new outlook, being confident about her place in the world, the work she did to earn it, and not apologizing for any of it. After a few weeks of watching her and getting a feel for this new Charlotte Flair I felt I was ready to do this painting in trying to capture where she's at now.
I made it all with acrylic paint in a traditional way but with a limited blue color palette. Removing an element like a full palette and only using one color helps to better frame her confidence both in the face and her posture as a whole. It's a subtle new look with a confidence born from experience for me as an artist, to illustrate Charlotte Flair's subtle new look born from her own experience.
