Mini Portrait #8
This year is a story of my 2 current favorite colors - radiant blue and cadmium green light. The faces are proving challenging and I have tweaked it a few times already. The hair was fun and so I'm now wanting hair on myself that looks like that! My attempt here was to use alternative colors in the hair and still let it represent the correct values needed in that area. Here it is in black and white so you can see what I'm talkin about. (Converting it to grayscale is a good way to see the areas that need to go darker or lighter for more drama ... these facial tones could use that treatment).
