SUMMER by grohsARTig SUMMER by grohsARTig
Illustration . Martin Grohs . 2013

SEASONS
This project should be a bit of a challenge and an exercise for me.
4 paintings. 4 portraits. Made in 4 days. Each in 4 hours. For the 4 seasons.

I constantly try to improve my skills and try new techniques.
Especially my digital painting skills.
That's why I've decided to make this project.
These paintings are not finished, that's what I've done n 4 hours.

Hope you like it! Enjoy!
You can find more sketches, wip's and illustrations on my Facebook page!

I hope this doesn't sound unduly critical, because I really like this image. Nicely framed, it makes me want to know the story of this moment. Having said that, that single all-important eye is too strongly lit under the brim of her hat. Summer light is high, hot and harsh, and the shadows here are too diffused. Also, I personally love redheads with freckles, but think there are too many "white" freckles. My first thought was that there were water droplets, and the soft lighting was because of a shower. (I also wondered if they were to be dust motes floating around her on a hot, hazy day.) But I don't think that's what you are attempting. For you to have completed this in four hours, wow, amazing work. I hope you have the time to revisit this image
