"Green Lennon Glasses"

acrylic on hardboard
We are still loving the Lennon glasses!  The kids love posing with them and I love the reflections they create on faces.  The latest addition is green.  The painting came together fairly easy, which is rare for me.  In this work, I began with the darker browns and built up to the lighter areas that you can see in the forehead, chin, and nose.  Darker colors are always painted in first, then the lighter colors are applied.  I leave the true white highlights for last.
