So it is week two for the Summer of Colo(u)r - and the colour scheme we've been given to work with this time is dark teal and coral with a pop of white...
I thought this would be a good excuse to practice my portraits, and went hunting for a reference photo on the excellent site Paint My Photo that would work well with the colour scheme (thanks to Carmen for tipping me off about this site!)
And I did my best to bring her to life, mixed media stylee (acrylics and oil pastels on a collaged base)
I am donating the finished painting to the Free Art Friday Swindon cause, I hope whoever finds her, likes her!
And talking of Free Art Friday, I was playing around the other day and made a little sugar skull canvas on a matching spray painted easel - it's tiny, the canvas is only 2" square:
That's all for now, see you next week for week 3 of SoC!
