Lamont from our Portrait Group
11" x 14"
oil on canvas
Lamont posed at our portrait group last Saturday. Thankfully, whoever set up the model turned out a bank of lights in the front of the room, allowing the spotlight to do its job properly. Many times they forget to do this and the fluorescent light from the overhead creates cool and arbitrary shadows that reflect back into the model's skin.
Lamont has great eyes. They are very very deep set and he held his pose very well.
