Evelyn portrait in blue dress

Evelyn – Oil on canvas

it’s a portrait of my lovely wife in a Japanese style dress, I painted it last year, planning to do a series of blue dress portraits of my muse. I was trying to capture the mood created by the light coming trough the window, the  shadow created became very interesting and colourful. Sometimes it is really hard to set up a model in the way you imagine, but if you stay open for bit of ‘accident’ the effect might surprise you. It was great to shoot photos of my wife and really inspiring, playing with composition and light you can learn a lot about portrait.
