"Life" series – In Progress

The past week, Jeff has been working on another painting in his “Life” series – this one featuring warm pink shades, unlike the previous painting (Life #2) that focused more on cooler hues. The lighting for this painting was a little more complex than the previous “Life” paintings, with a purple light in the shadows, and a more fuchsia shade in the reflected light and background. One of the reasons Jeff chose the bright pink was because of the way it brought out similar tones in her cheeks and lips. Can’t wait to see the finished product!
