100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Benjamin, 42/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
This is Benjamin. What made me pick this photo to paint was his adorable face with the incredible light on it. If you look carefully at the photo, you will notice an orange line that separates the sun lighted skin from the shadowed skin. It looks like the photo was taken in the late afternoon when the sun that is very golden in tone.
The reflected light on the other side of his face is an area that allows me to get a little wild with the color. In this case, I used a cool light blue in contrast to the warm sunlit colors on the other side of his face.
