This is my last post prior to the New Year. My next post will be on Tuesday, January 4, 2011. I wish my readers a wonderful holiday season.
This is a painting I did using water soluble oils. I used a complementary color scheme of muted orange and blue. This is a sketch rather than a portrait painting. I was interested in painting the man’s features and the head covering. I like to paint faces in the crowd that interest me. I am charmed by head coverings, earrings and unique hair styles. I frequently change colors and more to suit my interest. When I paint skin, I like to use a warm muted orange. This hue (color) is enhanced by the cool complementary blue background. I like three quarter profiles. These profiles provide opportunities to more clearly see the faces’ features.
