self portrait | oil on canvas
I dedicate to photography for two decades, in my free time I draw and paint, I like to synergy my knowledge and prepare some reference pictures for you. Together with my wife we prepared photos we think are best as reference. Traditional lightning - usually one source of light - so you get light and dark side, visible form shadow, terminator, in between, small highlight, no retouching in same cases also cast shadow if possible. All this within dynamic range of digital camera. This way you see form more 3D.
