I have acquired a new toy! A remote control programmable LED light bulb. Here are the results of its first outing with a model. The painting is a colour study painted directly from the model. I take photos at the same time and then combine the colour study and photos to create a more finished work. The colour study was painted in fifteen minuets and the drawing took a day. Colour studies are done directly from the model and are really only a colour note as to what I saw at the time. Most are not worth looking at but this one works in its own right. The LED bulb provided the green/blue light and a normal tungsten spotlight provided the orange light.
