This is Eric, also a member of the art group himself and I are happily a part of. I took a bunch of shots of the group members and have collected so many possible painting possibilities.
With this portrait I decided to limit my palette—that took quite a while—and see what happened. I used cadmium red, white, black and a bit of ultramarine blue.

Black, white and 3 colors and I can still feel the essence of him...his contemplation and furrowed brow. All that color is really just 'frosting'. Nicely done.ReplyDelete
