1286 'By Candle Light'
8" x 10" oil on masonite
As you all probably know that dark paintings are hard to photograph, this is my best shot!
My daughter had taken some interesting pics of herself with her cell phone, by candle light, which I thought would make a different kind of painting experience for me. It was quite different to paint monochromatic and I learnt a lot. I realized that I need to hone my drawing skills as I often use a grid to help transfer an image and without it I have difficulties getting the proportions right.
I am re-posting this painting as I wasn't happy with it and have fiddled with it no end and have got to a point where enough is enough!
