Original Oil Painting Portrait of Jessica
I couldn't resist doing a full color version of Jessica in her over-the-top costume. If a model is willing to wear long heavy gloves in July I feel it's my duty to paint them in full color. I was going for a Rembrandt look with this- heavy dark background and luminous features.
The jewelry was a lot of fun to paint too. Jessica was going for a vampish look I believe and it really works.
