I found the black model more challenging to locate the exaggerated color. The figures with darker skin have so much wonderful color in them naturally that I struggled to exaggerate enough. I made the darks more Alizarin Crimson and the lights toward yellow but even yet...it does not feel exaggerated to me. Sorry about the glare.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
