Manon – 11-10-19 (sold)

A commissionary piece. The girl has natural blonde hair, alabaster skin and blue eyes. It goes without saying that it was senseless to put her in full daylight. I let her sit for me ‘contrejour’ so the light from behind would be shattered through her blonde hair like through a prisma. This way I could see beautiful color shifts: from purple to green. I played an old pointillistic trick to put yellow and lavender pastel strokes nex to eachother in the hair. This complementary effect shows the right luministic nature of the light that cannot be reached through using white strokes only.
