From The Vault: Errol Flynn - 2004

Around this time I doing a bunch of Classic Hollywood-era portraits, most of them in black and white, since that seemed most evocative of the period.

But when I did this portrait of the swashbuckling Errol Flynn, I realized it would only be appropriate to do it in deep, rich color, since the film he's most famous for (The Adventures of Robin Hood) is in color. And even though this shot isn't of Flynn as Robin Hood, it still felt like the way to go.

Looking back over it, I like how the colors of the sky are all blended together and a little pastel-y, it reminds me a bit of that classic Technicolor look.
