Bruce,

I am not familiar with Larry Bovit's work, but I noticed the high chroma palette. Is this what he teaches or is this how you chose to paint the model?

I ask because I find the color choice unusual and interesting. Then again, it might just be how my monitor shows it.

Hi Enzie
The colour choice was mine.. The light was very warm and bright. and I had a limited palette of Nupastel (hard) . If I painted Tom in oil I would tone down the intensity somewhat.. It was actually quite a warm day as well so he had a bit of a glow on..

THanks for stopping by
