100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Milvi, 30/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art


Day 30

Today's portrait is one of a pair of sisters, Milvi and Inga, who said they spent an afternoon having a photo shoot to get photos to send to me. They said even if I don't choose to paint them, they had a lot of fun doing their photo session.
They did a great job of setting up the lighting for their photo shoot. Notice the strong single light source on one side. When I first painted Milvi, I had her all in blue and purple. She looked like an extra out of Avatar. I decided to tone down the blue to a somewhat more believable color, but you can still see some blue here and there.
I had fun with her glasses too. They're kind of there and not there. For purchase information, please see my website or email me at carolnelsonfineart@comcast.net
