Profile Portrait Work-in-Progress


Hello Friends!

This week in my Let’sFaceIt2020 class, we are beginning our unit on painting profiles which is what I have been looking forward to!

Our instructor, Larissa West, used some yellows, oranges, and reds in her portrait which is gorgeous! Also, she painted on an 8×10″ black substrate. Painting on black is so much more challenging than painting on a white surface. I have only

The only black substrate I have is a 12×12″ canvas. So I have a little more background space in mine. But I am not sure yet if I am going to paint anything in the background. I think I want to try to make her glow since she is supposed to be facing light. I want it to look like a silhouette.

So now I am researching the colors I need to make her hair blonde. I am sure I have the right colors for that. I will also be working on my other portrait this weekend.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug. 😀
