100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Randy, 87/100, Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 87

This is Randy, husband of Kay, (51/100). This is a great reference photo with the bright sun highlighting the planes of his face. A photo like that makes my job easy. His eyes, however, are in such deep shadow that I couldn't make them out, even with a magnifying glass.
I use a magnifying glass on many of the photos. It has revealed critical little details on more than one portrait. For purchase information, please see my website.
