100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS -Inga, 31/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art




Day 31

Here's the other sister, Inga. At first I painted her yellow. I found out nobody looks good painted yellow, so I put a pink glaze (Liquin and paint - quinacridone voilet in this case) over the finished painting, and Inga suddenly looked so much healthier. She now looks like she's bathed in the glow of a setting sun, or maybe just returned from vacationing in the Caribbean! There is a diabolical reflection in her glasses that was a challenge, but I think I got it.

Inga looks like a deep thinker. Another great job, Carol. I'd have to agree with you; I can't imagine any of us looking good sallow!

Carol...great job as usual. You are getting so good at this that you appear to know exactly what to do when a problem crops up.
