"Michelle", 11x14" oil on gesso board

This painting of Michelle was done from life last week, and I painted it in Bill Schneider's studio in Crystal Lake.  The lighting there was different for me, so I found myself with a final product with colors that look different from most of my work.  I was intrigued by the way that the muted palette made the portrait appear kind of old fashioned, and maybe even a bit timeless.

  1. I agree - it is true how light can be so different and effect the palette.
    This does have a dreamy, classic look. .and you nailed the values perfectly.
    I think the way you painted the hair has a lovely contemporary feel to it - because the hair style?
    Michelle is lovely.
