29 Faces number 20 and 21
Hi folks and welcome to my blog post. I have fallen behind slightly again from my daily posts but I have a double treat for you as I have caught up on my faces today. Another two watercolour drip effect portraits. I am trying new ways and trying to find my style in there too. It is still a bit of a hit or miss but so far I have resisted the temptation to sketch first. I may try sketching next just to see how much of a difference it makes to my paintings. I have been trying to make these paintings as organic as I can, hence no initial sketch. But perhaps I can still get that organic feel even with an initial sketch even if it is to place certain markers of the face. So without further a do, here are my two faces.
I decided to use my decadent pies watercolours by prima then thought "oh the purple acrylic ink I have would look fab as her hair" So there you have it. I quite like this girl.
For this painting I thought I would try my hand at a male face with this technique, only it did not quite go according to plan but it certainly is a step in the right direction. I think I got too invested in making sure it looked like a male face and got too bogged down with trying to get in detail.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my abstract exploration paintings as much as I have enjoyed painting them. Thank you, please come back soon T
