Day 18 - Side Light

Side Light, Acrylic on Gessoed Mat Board, 10"x7"

Day 18 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

This is based on a photo of an elderly uncle sitting in a chair by the window. The resulting side light made the right side of his face almost completely white while the shadowed side was quite dark. I decided to add a bunch of greens and blues to the shadowed side and work out from there. It mostly works. I have to admit that I mentally stalled out about half way through this one.
