Experimental Colors

I love experimenting with color. It is an approach I use to help me see different facial elements, bone structure, high lights and low lights. Sometimes, the color schemes work, and sometimes they don’t… it is all about a process of building ones relationship with colors. the below works are all soft pastel compositions on toned paper 18″x 24″

also notice the color story on the bottom right
This was as far as I got with this portrait, from life, pastel study.

It is a privilege to have a relationship with color, it is the most important relationship in my life that I am consistently nurturing…
