Alla Prima Series: Rim Lit Profile

Kai continues his Alla Portrait Series with a man's portrait in profile. This profile portrait features distinctive features, and beautiful textured hair including facial hair. Kai focuses on the distinctive rim lighting, including how to play with red, yellow, and blue colors to pop the intensity. Because of the strong distinction between light and shadow in this portrait as well as the similar values of the hair and background, this portrait is great practice for portrait artists.
Kai also gives a detailed explanation of his materials, including his oil paint and brush choices. (2.5 hours +)
