    Hi all,
    I want to paint a portrait from one of these photos but I’m not sure which one is best in terms of light/form. I will only be painting the torso and face, not the legs.
    I like the first one (with the grey wall in the background) but is there too much shadow on the face?
    I can use one of these photos or take a new one, but I’m currently undecided so any opinions to help me decide would be greatly appreciated.
    If you see this Matt I would love to hear your opinion.
    Thank you,
    Caitlin

    I’ve had to resize the pictures to get them to load, here they are.

    I would chose the first one. I think that you have to really force the line that separates the lights and shadows because they are not that visible. Just a thought.
