My wife painting. While making a color edit I was taken with this rendition. The effect is produced by Capture One's color editor when viewing selected colors. It is not too difficult to turn into a local adjustment.

Anyway palette failed to protect hands before painting
Cool idea a super performance
@Roman, thanks! Photographing the process of painting was my wife's idea. I worked late yesterday and had to outsource ideation. The composition and lighting was my idea.
@Satoshi, I failed to mention the lighting set up! There is a shoot-through umbrella above and left of the palette. It is on a boom and almost a meter above the subject. There is a second flash nearly level to the palette 45 degrees off to the upper right. This lighting setup worked quite well for many shots and gave the paint a pleasing form. I failed to recognize that for this shot the right hand had such strong shadows. It is something I fought during editing but did not succeed in neutralizing. If I were to do it again, the second light would have moved more to the right in order to illuminate the top of the hand more evenly.
I also think second light might move more the right, but take care of direct reflection from paint! :) Thank you @Eugene !
