blue man on orange

My first alla prima portrait, with an unusual ground color--Octoberish/pumpkin, with ultramarine blue plus some white, for the figure.

One of the artists found this man in the Apple store and asked him if he would model. He agreed, and was excellent at doing it. Turns out that he is a potter and used to artists.

On 300# gessoed watercolor paper.
