Portrait #23 - Sarah

6 x 6 oil on panel
NFS

This photo shows Sarah's right side a bit bluer than it really is in the painting. Something about this one made it hard to take an accurate photo. Could it be the extreme darks and lights throwing the meter off?

I really liked the lighting on Sarah even if it was just lamplight. Her face was glowing warm tones under her hair which was a lot of fun to paint.

  1. Cathy, you've captured the light on her face really well. The extreme lights and darks create drama, which is so interesting. Great job!
