mini Portrait #13
This photo is actually brighter than the painting -- so my color adjustments in Photoshop are a bit errant. Painted from a live model, who kept moving ... also she was wearing glasses so I took them off while painting and then couldn't see what I was doing at all (haha). Thus the looser style. I wasn't quite finished, but had to leave the studio ... so didn't get a chance to double check the values. I'm now noticing that my lights all seem to be the same level where in actuality they are a bit more varied (especially the tone on the upper bridge of the nose). Will tweak it today, but wanted to get something posted for now.
