I wanted to do a portrait with drama in it. I’m bored with the typical straight-on face with washed-out lighting. The subject in this painting was lit with only one candle. Her face is at an angle. The highlights in the eyes and on her bottom lip bring it to life.

It’s fun to see something different! The skin looks good. Was it hard to paint the different tones of the skin created by the candle?

This is gorgeous! I love the angle and the lighting. The highlights on the face and the clothing really make a beautiful painting.
