I have enjoyed working with hair in the more recent portraits.
The reference photos were borrowed from Morgan's blog postings. Plus I have enjoyed the advantage of having the model visiting with us for a short time.
I tried to do a more classic portrait without distraction. So the clothing is suggested rather than defined and the background is muted and distant.
I was pleased with the result. Morgan's hair in the portrait has a step more saturated auburn shade than I was able to bring to the photograph - while the dress is a full value less saturated than the photo would imply
I am able to paint it however I cannot photograph it very accurately.
My thanks to the models
