Hey people, still painting wet on this one, I just finished this a couple of minutes ago and the paint is still wet. This is the beautiful Constance Bennett one of the highest paid starlets of the 20s and 30s. I concentrated on the hair and face and tried to painterly finish the dress, concentrating more the values. I used a limited palette of the colors prussian blue, naples yellow, raw umber, crimson red, burnt sienna and of course white. I’ll be doing these portraits until I finish my next larger painting, which I am half way finished with. This way I have the feeling that I am getting something done while working on my larger painting during the week.
Thanks for looking in and stay healthy,
