I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to email@example.com.
I struggle with the same thing. I think it has to do with the value of red at full strength. I can only add green to make a shadow color and then add orange plus white for a highlight.ReplyDelete
She looks beautiful.
Great job as always.
Charles, you should have been a surgeon. Do you use a magnifier when working. I truly don't see how you can work so small! By the way, love this!ReplyDelete
You're right Tina. I think he uses brushes with no more than 2 hairs per brush. lol.ReplyDelete
The results of your efforts are astonishing.
As always, masterful!ReplyDelete
Charles, this painting is a Beauty! Her eyes, nose, lips, and the way her hand touches her neck is such intimacy.ReplyDelete
The red compounds this. It's hard to look away. I'll just slap myself!
SUPERB RED LADY !ReplyDelete
