Hello I had some time last night to shoot two recent figure paintings. I love playing with color and it looks like I still have a lot to learn with exploring the use of saturated color. The Candice drawing was an effort to use this turquoise pastel color that I don't normally use but makes for a beautiful highlight. Instead of going from Warm to cool the piece goes from cool to warm. It might be that we don't normally see the cool to warm lighting or notice it but it makes for a very compelling look. The painting of Lindsay was about capturing the fall out lighting and the warm to cool transition. The difficulty with this painting was getting the transition color looking right and figuring out where that transition of color should begin and end. Each one is now available at www.orlandosanchezart.bigcartel.com and there are other paintings there as well. Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome creative day.
