Going to the Prom

Going to the Prom

18" x 24"
Oil on wood Panel

This painting just captures a small moment.

I thought the solid black would be an interesting challenge - making enough detail to be convincing while still black with black shoes and a black tie. The lapels have less blue than the photograph indicates.

Overall I am pleased.

The black is ivory black which has a dark blue undertone which helps with color harmony here.

I took some license with the setup and with Rebecca's hair color.

It was fun to work on. Her arms form interesting light bridge between the two.
