A Bedouin Arab - Sargent
Another Sargent copy where the man's face contains the darkest and brightest values in the piece and is surrounded by a loosely painted light cloak. Its a very simple but effective way to draw the viewer's eye to the man's face. One thing I found fascinating about this painting is that all the shadows are painted with very thin transparent layers of dark paint and everything in direct light he has used thick opaque paint which gives it a little more volume if that makes sense. I've heard of the transparent shadow rule before but I don't often see it applied in digital art or maybe I never notice.
