Theatrical lighting

Just for fun I painted this woman with "up-lights" it's not the sort of lighting treatment you see everyday and she's intentionally "warm". She's painted mostly with the paints leftover from other projects.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, In the Footlights, oil on 9 x 12 canvas panel

Peut-être inhabituel, mais j'aime l'expression de son regard, la petite lumière qui pétille dans ses yeux. Et finalement ces restes de couleurs comme vous dites, avec cette dominance de rouge lui apporte une émotion...
Bises,
Je vous remercie pour votre gentil message laissé sur mon blog

I like the pushing of the colors in this one.

This is VERY nice, Celeste. Your palette is beautiful and shows emotion in your beautiful model.

I also like your previous painting. There is something about ballerinas that attract the eye. Beautifully done!

You really have captured the look of stage lighting. Nice job!
