Mr Shorb and Calvin Klein

I shot several pictures of this little 6x6 and they are all totally glare-smacked. It's too dark to reshoot so I'll give you an apology to go with your painting today.
This is Mr Shorb in a CK tie. Mr Shorb was our model this week and this painting was mainly about reflected light.
The light side is pretty bleached out. The shadow side, while still white, is just about the same color-value as the background drape.
When painting, the artist brings knowledge to the task but should allow observation to make the final decisions. When what you see doesn't match what you know, trust what you see.
