Artist Process: Scott Bartner -- Part 2

Next step -- the first layers of color!  You can see the flesh tones bringing life to Julia's face, especially with the subtle rosiness to her cheeks.  Scott is a master of contrast and shadow, however slight, allowing her nose and chin to become much more dimensional.  Our favorite element of Scott's work is easily the draw of his eyes!  He creates figures with captivating eyes that bring the viewer right to the sitter or model.
