"Maarten", acrylic painting from life



Pin It
"Maarten", acrylic on cardboard, 70 min pose, NFS




































Thursdaynight life drawing class. This time, focus was on using color so I used more saturated reflected lights this time.

What a nice portrait. Those strong reflected spots of blue are what grabbed my attention on this one. All your portraits are well done.

Thank you very much Stephanie!
It's fun to look for areas of different color temperature in the face and try to enhance them in the painting.

Beautifully painted, Erik..your portraits are always outstanding. It was so interesting to see how other artists' paint the same subject.. thanks for sharing!
