Lunch on the Lawn
5x5 oil on panel
$75 + s/h - Sold
Still enjoying my sunny lawn series here. Its great practice actually, painting small, putting in dabs of color, leaving some pure color, experimenting with flesh tones, reflected color, etc.
I think one of the most important things about painting people is to paint them with warmth. We have lots of blue and green undertones in skin, but when painted with blues and browns, people will just look ashy and aged. I like to make sure my shadows have lots of reds. A master of color in the human form is John Asaro. Check him out for some real inspiration.
