100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Dana, 13/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art



Day 13
This lovely lady is another artist (danacooperfineart.com) whose work I admire. Notice the incredible reference photo she sent. It practically paints itself. She said she wanted the Fauvist treatment, so I punched up the color pretty good. The purple is Windsor Newton dioxazine purple and is not this fluorescent - my camera couldn't quite capture that color correctly.

For purchase information, please see my website, or email me at carolnelsonfineart@comcast.net.

Tomorrow is the last day for voting on your favorite from the first group of ten. Email me your vote by midnight Wednesday.

I think this is my favorite painting of Dana that I've seen thus far! Beautiful work, Carol!

Carol, this is a very strong painting, the brushstrokes are great. Really like the highlighted side--all of it--the hair, the eye, and love the way you painted Dana's chin; outstanding!

I've been following your fabulous 100 faces in 100 days.....They're wonderful!! Look forward to tomorrow. Don't have any well lit photos of myself or else I'd ask if I could join in your painting spree by sending you a photo. Keep up the wonderful work!!

I love this portrait of Dana. I only know her through the blog world but you've seemed to capture her bright and colorful personality with a hint of sassiness.

Carol!

I love the extremes here.

The yellow light and the purple shadow. Come on....what's not to love about that!
