I've been inspired by the work of Steven Assael for some time now and one of the many things I love about his work is what he does with light and color. This painting is my second attempt at using a colored light bulb in a portrait. I think the colored light really adds another level to the piece. I lit Kerri with a 5K light bulb over head and had a red 60w shining in from the side. I'm going to continue exploring with this some more as I find it very challenging to try and get that strong color and light to work on the face.
Here's the painting. It measures 16x10 and is oil on panel.
