PAINT BY NUMBERS?


Well, not exactly. But I do like sometimes to concentrate on a specific thing in a teaching class demo, as in this case - the color harmony of red and green - rather than sticking to a formula.

This was my demo in my portrait class at Vita Art Center in Ventura...the model, actually a real person, had crazy wild great hair...black with light blonde streaks. No point playing it safe. And of course her hair is my favorite part of the sketch. Simple as that, 1...2...3...

Fabulous Portrait. Love that wild hair! The red/green harmony works so beautifully.
