Out in Melbourne, Australia you'll find the lovely work of Katie Young who is a total art find. Her portraits are beautifully rough and sexual with passion behind each pose and paint stroke. The small faded details of her pieces, as in this painting, are a welcoming invitation to be further drawn into the piece and work your eye around it looking for more hidden gems. Check out her site and peruse her wonderful portraiture.
Thanks to a little bird out in London for turning me onto her ;)
