100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Lynn, 95/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art


Day 95

This is a beautiful photo of Lynn with the sunlight slanting across her face. I loved painting her auburn hair and amber glasses. There was one problem I could not solve. The amber lenses in her glasses have a blue, iridescent glow along the top. I tried every blue in my paint box and could not match that color.
For purchase information, please see my website.

carol,
This is a beautiful painting, by you, of Lynn with the sunlight slanting across her face. I loved the painting which correctly depicted her auburn hair and amber glasses. There was one problem which you can't solve. The amber lenses in her glasses have a blue, iridescent glow along the top which you have painted beautifully. I tried to find if there is any damage done to the beauty of the photograph but i am happy to find out that you have matched it with the color you used to paint it...
