This is Chloe.
An ever-dramatic soul. Lover of theatre.
She has more passion than she knows what to do with, is always in motion, and is always ten steps ahead in her mind.
Also, she likes Star Wars.
And dance shoes.
When I asked what color she wanted to represent her eyes, she said “Gold” instantly.
She always is seeing shining lights… Stay gold, Chloe. ❤
Sometimes people ask me why I use “unrealistic” colors in my shading. Well, because it is a painting, and if I wanted it to look like a photograph, I would take a photograph.
But I digress. This is Lucy. I think she looks like a beautiful elfin princess. And watercolor suited her.
2013 has arrived and Lydia and Sarah are the same as ever. They’re practically the embodiment of smiles and theatrics. As we ventured around the heart of our wintery hometown I found myself wishing I was making a video instead of just a photoshoot. You can’t quite capture these girls without audio. They like to be heard! Here’s just a little sampling of the session. I hope you all enjoy 🙂 And thank you Lydia and Sarah for being such colorful models!
My gorgeous friend Abby disguised as Grace Ferrel from the musical Annie. She’s rocking a scarlet suit and holding a carnation she recieved for her amazing performance. It was too perfect not to paint.
(As a side note: This watercolor is the final instalment in my “Perspective Portraits” project. It’s been a fun semester!)
