H20 Show in Newport, RI

More great news! My beach portrait won Best of Show in the CPSA district 112 memebr show. You probably remember me working n the piece. The show was a water themed show, so I decided to do a beach inspired portrait. My inyentions were to get that sun drenched, windswept feeling. The colourful skintones of the outdoors proved to be really hard to achieve. I even had to do a redo and create some color samples to get me through it! Here are my original posts on the piece while it was in progress:
