Marco by Dan Simoneau

Marco by Dan Simoneau

Title: Marco

Desc: Marco is a transparent watercolor. I was experimenting with my photography when I created the image that was the source for this painting. The IPad has a softbox app to use for photography. I had Marco place his elbows on the table and then place his head in his hands as you see. I then turned off all the lights in the room and slid the softbox between his arms on the table to generate the uplight on his face. To paint the image, I used large washes of color to set the general tone and then focused in with what I call microwashes to capture the detail including skin texture. The painting has many layers of transparent washes which give a glow to the skin and the face.
