100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Henry, 18/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 18

Henry had a great idea for taking his own picture. He was standing by a window (notice the great light on his face), looking in the mirror, and holding the camera to the side so I could crop out the camera. Brilliant.

Obviously, I pushed the color on this one too - am I going to say that for just about every one? Guess so because they ARE Fauvist style paintings, after all. I liked the red and orange background against his blue shirt. For purchase information, please see my website, or email me at carolnelsonfineart@comcast.net.

I really like the purples in his face, Carol. And I am thinking that this man has a ton of hair! What a blessing that is.

Carol you sure are nailin' these portraits. The likenesses are all spot on, and the colours are so beautiful and very Carol.
