Art: Whoa, Nellie! by Artist Dawn Howard White
This is my portrait of Noelle Hunt, who is quite possibly one of the most beautiful women I've seen. I asked if I could do her naked, and being the very kind person she is, she consented. After looking at her photos, I realized colors weren't important, and trying to get realistic colors may, in fact, detract from her beautiful bone structure.. so I painted her in magenta and yellow, exaggerating her hair to reflect what I see as her wild, flowing, eccentric and interesting personality. I also changed the light source, slightly... instead of the camera flash, that jewel on her chest is the light source. She was wearing a pendant in the photo, which of course I took massive liberties with, since I'm that kinda gal.
