Thought's of a Lover by waynecampbell-art Thought's of a Lover by waynecampbell-art
30'' x 20'' oil on canvas

I painted this back in '07. It took me six weeks to learn how to solve the natural light on one side and artificial light on the other with very little contrast to show form. For the longest time I could not figure it out. How'd I do, any thoughts?

errr you did great! This is beautiful Wayne. I appreciate what you mean by the transition between natural and artificial light, it is difficult to get it right

Wonderful portrait. I love the way you handled the colours. I don't know why but your portrait brings to my mind Andrew Wyeth's Helga series.

Maybe it's the weather of the symbolism that permeates the image.

Really beautiful work. The artificial light is so subtle. I think you solved it.

Wow! Gorgeous oil painting. I love the vivid colors, her skin tones and how detailed you painted everything. I also love how you kept the backgound dark and unobtrusive...it really makes the woman stand out and compliments her. Fantastic job! Thanks for sharing.

What a gorgeous portrait!! You did wonderful with the lighting, especially on the face and the flower adds a lot of depth to it and makes it almost a bit surreal I think.... great skills!!

nice use of light..i totally "get it". Daylight on the flower makes it POP topped off with the interesting shadow from it on her shoulder. Much more interesting with the artificial light on the right, otherwise you may lose all those beautiful facial features..bravo! C'mon buddy, you must have more older stuff to share with us?

Thank you, Rob! This is technically the hardest oil painting for me that I have done. It's nice to hear that it works visually for others as well. I had to paint the flower twice, the first time it 'popped' too far forward. I still think it could be 'pushed' back further, more in-line with the shadow.
...and yup, more to come...
