Adrian, Our Actor Model

I didn't really have a big plan for this picture, other than achieving a likeness. In all of them, I have tried to paint the figure and not necessarily to do a portrait. I did strive to catch the quality of Adrian's body, as he is a thin guy with a well-toned body. I was also into his shirt, which was he most wonderful green color. I used a lot of tranparencies for the skin, and some new (better quality)paints I bought: cadmium yellow deep and pyrrole orange. Rebeca

  1. What a great treatment of this subject! I love how you captured the pose--the twist of his torso, the gesture of his right hand. You also got a good likeness, especially considering the small scale of the face. The whole color scheme works well, and the dark shadow at the bottom left provides a subtle but effective anchor. Admirably done!
