Since the only other person at my disposal who sits quite still, I must add, is Chet, I decided to do another painting of him. Again, this painting was quick-2-3hours.
I was really trying to show that it was quite dark in the room and there was a bright light to his left (paintings right) and a distant light behind me which cast a bit on his ear.
I have to say that this photography though does not show it so much because the paint was wet and the flash bounced off of it making it look lighter on the left side of the painting then it actually was.. I might try photographing it again? We will see.
