Daydream by dlapastel Daydream by dlapastel
Sometimes the best reference pics come when you're not even trying. After the photo shoot had ended, the model and I wandered into another part of my house to chill, and while relaxing, I took some more pics. The lighting was very weak, hence the straight ahead camera flash appearance of this portrait. I hate that light, but loved the pic, and knew I had to paint it. The model hasn't seen this painting yet, but I'm hoping that she'll like it enough to do another photo shoot, in bright colors, to contrast with her dark complexion (Are you reading this Geeky? That orange sundress of yours? Yummmm). I'll probably touch it up a bit in a few weeks, but I have to stop working on it for awhile to do some other projects. I hope you like it.

Daydream: pastel on 600 grit Uart sanded pastel paper. Approximately 13x17 inches (33x43 cm).

Thanks again. I'm well underway on another painting of this model - one with a different mood from this one - and schedule permitting, will post sometime in mid January. (I've been in the mood to refine figures for future pastels lately, so I've been doing more pencil and less pastel work than usual.) Love your pics.

Talk to you later.

You're portraits are stunning, and for some reason I particularly like this one. It might be the spontaneity that you mentioned.

The eggnog is tasty, and spiked with the best whiskey I could afford. You're very welcome!
