Here are my catch-up faces for this week.
The 2 men are from reference photos in wetcanvas. It was interesting to practice male portraits. Female faces tend to dominate my art work.
Face 17: Man in hat. Here I concentrated on tonal information. Shading is useful information for a future painting.
Face 18: Here I was trying out my new bottle of crackle medium (by Folk Art: Plaid USA). I like the pronounced crackle effects of this medium, used in the background.
Face 19: Here I tried out the combination of pen for the outlines and pan pastels for the colour. I am still trying to get the hang of blending this medium. I think it would be good to try pan pastels over watercolour next.
Face 20: In this one, I tried light washes of black ink for the shading before adding the pan pastel colours. I think I should have left more white for the light areas...next time I will.
So now I am caught up.
Have a great week!!
