Painting marathon (part 1)


After taking a break for a week or so, I hired a model to come on Saturday and another one to come on Monday and Tuesday (today). I decided it was time I get back to painting, so I worked as fast as I could on Saturday to complete the entire painting in one sitting (four hours). I love to experiment with color to create different effects even though they are not the natural colors in the studio. Here is the result of Saturday's experiment, painting as though there was orange light that produced purple shadows. The model, by the way, is named Chris and is the same one that posed for the first drawing in this blog.
