Here's Eddie, our sweet mail carrier, on the day he told me he was retiring. I ran inside and got my camera for a snapshot I could paint his portrait as a retirement gift. I still had the photos, so I thought I'd try it again, in my new style. Actually, I worked on a white ground this time, and just REMOVED the lights !!!! Pretty fun !

I DID forgo the polka-dots for the sake of simplicity... ha !

I discovered a cool method to compare my paint mixture to the photo.... I just painted a dab on the edge of the card, moved the card to the photo, and checked for intensity, hue and value.... woo woo ! it really worked ! try it !!! (this picture of the chart and photo looks a little 'yellowish' because I took it with the light from my lamp, instead of a flash)
