Female in Profile





Female in Profile, Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 10"


I did this from a photograph I found on Deviant Art. The owner of it (also the model here) allows people to use her photographs for art work with prior permission. She calls herself Curious Peaches.
I hope I haven't made this beautiful girl look like she has a case of typhoid or jaundice (with so much of cadmium yellow being used there). I find it is really difficult to make warm  mixtures look bright. When I add white to make a mixture bright to simulate the bright light, the mixture invariably starts appearing cool. Many of you must have gone through this problem and might have found excellent solutions for it too. Any suggestions in this matter shall be more than welcome.


Thank you all for stopping by.

She has a certain character.. very nicely done. IMO the ear area could be touched a little!!!
