Beginning a new portrait...should have more sessions with this model, so limited this to trying to get the lights and shadows in place, without rushing. We are following a lighting pattern used by Anders Zorn with light from both sides, pushing the shadows to the center of the face. Our model is a delight...strong features and her hair is the color of amber...this will be fun. Aloha!


  1. Love how you painted the contours of her face!!

  2. Azra, thanks. Have been missing painting outside of portrait class, and enjoying yours all the more.
