I chose to paint the same model from the light side this time. The pose is the same. I therefore took up an easel on the other side of the studio. I like how the pose looked from this angle and I have the challenge of the profile to work with.
Profiles may seem easy but I find them challenging because there is less information to work with. Les points of reference and less shadow to mark the feautres. This is where technical experience comes into play to create the likeness of an individual, not just the painterly effect.
This view of my first work in progress for Light on White Satin presents great light on the fabric. It is a fun piece to work with for that reason. It also presents the completion of the color block-in. I am currently focusing on making corrections on the features to get the best likeness I can achieve.
