This evening I had a great session with my main model throughout the years. She is slender, knows what I want and shows dark skin tones, giving my the possibility to fool around with all sorts of colours. Darker toned persons can take on many colours from the surroundings and this is what this session was all about. I therefor placed a cool day light lamp to the left and a warmer one to the right so I got a differentiated look. I decided to have the pastel appear to become quite expressionistically.
