Lucia revisited

May 30th, 2010 3 comments

It seems that by using wet on wet, Lucia looks more like the Lucy we all knew. She still looks a little too old, but the face is finally hers, at least seems like it to me. I tried to use colors that looked ancient, after all, this is from a 90 year old photograph of a young girl just a few years after she had moved to the USA.

I painted Megan again. This time I used a new technique, placing wet paint on wet paper. I wanted to preserve the softness of her skin and to show how she glows. It looks like I’m getting a little closer.
