100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Sean, 38/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
Every photo comes with new and unique challenges. This is my first painting of someone with freckles and first (and probably only) one with a gecko. This is another example of a good reference photo having both sun and shadows on the face.
For purchase information on this painting, please see my website, or email me at email@example.com.
FYI: I know you are all viewing these paintings on your computer monitor at home or at work (tsk-tsk). Someone who had purchased two paintings emailed me that the paintings, when he received them, did not look anything like what he saw on his monitor. They were much more vibrant and colorful and he LOVED them.
This is a typical response when people see their portraits in person. If your monitor is an older model, or you don't have it set up for maximum color, you may be missing out on some of the vibrant colors I put into most of these portraits.
I just got a new 22 inch flatscreen monitor and the images on it match the colors in the paintings exactly. I suggest everyone go out and buy a new monitor so you can see the next 62 portraits as they were meant to be seen - LOL - just kidding.
