Hugo Under the Light

This painting started out as a study of light coming from the top since I have mostly painted portraits with side or front light. It became a bit sinister when I added the tree, which I kind of like. Initially I was just going to have a very dark black background and half way through I added the tree. I do like the contrast I created between the cold background and the happy warmth under the light (Hawaiian shirt and all).
