Pause Series Addition

                                                                          Oil Study on Wood Panel

I’m back to work on the Pause Series.  This time I’m disclosing the oil study before I present the final images.

The next seven Pause posts will be derivatives of the image above.  The process begins with a photo shoot, including fabric as a prop.  The subject has no idea that I am capturing the pause moments, the pensive moments, and not the posing moments. The next step; an oil study based on one of the unguarded/paused moments (above). The Pause images to follow, will wind up as very large custom prints. The process will dramatically rearrange features and expression. I’ll be posting one a week for seven weeks.

    You’re talented AND sneaky during pauses Elena, she will never know how incredible she turned out! I look forward to the series, beautiful work.

  11. This is a striking portrait. I’ve no doubt you’ll find something new to say about it, but I suspect it will be different rather than an improvement.

  17. Wow, sounds like a cool process. The depth of features and the skin is just amazing! Really beautiful un-posed moment.

    I’m happy that I finally started doing faces but I’m still in the “put eyes in the right spot and angle lips properly phase”, and that’s really just 2D. Baby steps!

  18. Beautiful! ❤
