100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - David, 70/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 70

This is an artist in my local artist's guild. He obviously listened well to my instructions about lighting his photo. This was a lot of fun to paint with the dramatic light and shadow. For purchase information, please see my website.

I have been working on the photo book I'm going to publish after completion of all these portraits. So far, it's looking really good.

Time to vote!! This completes another group of 10. Please scroll all the way back to the portraits starting from March 2nd - Michelle - 61/100, Maddie- 62/100, Lauren- 63/100, Jodi- 64/100, and Charlie-65/100. Then skip to March 19th with Mitzi, Sharron, Ed, Lisa and David today. This particular group of 10 has several of my favorites so good luck!

Nice painting.

Nice job on this, Carol!

Although it is rather "safe" compared with your portraits that have the exaggerated colors.

This one has more of traditional look to it. That's not necessarily a bad thing though!
