Figure with Vanitas

I am still toying with multiple light sources and was somewhat pleased with this result. Currently I am trying to learn to effectively illuminate a scene entirely by candlelight. It requires lots of candles, but fortunately the fire department is just down the street.
oil on canvas panel, 8 x 6 inches, 2010


  1. The cool light, and warm light in this painting
    along with her gentle touch and look..
    Charles this painting has a life of its own.
    To do a painting lite completly by candle light would be heavenly.

  2. I like the multiple views of the woman. The lighting is quite sumptous. If you light your subjects with candles, will you also illuminate your canvas and palette in that manner?
