The Thinkers

Posted on November 27, 2016

I’ve taken the photos of models for a new series of paintings called “The Thinkers.” I want to do a series of head shots where something is revealed about the sitter, as if you can understand who they are by looking at them. It’s a bit tricky to get the inflections in the eyes and lips perfect in order to achieve the perfect facial expression. I want my model here to have more of a sly smile; I’ll try to achieve that with the next layer of grisaille.
