Portraits

Portrait study 02: Striving towards expressionism

In this instance I went for a very expressionistic and freestyle design to create a portrait in mixed medium, collage technique. I had a lot of fun doing this and because I was working on a picture of myself I didn't mind bringing out some of my personality traits such as being artistic, musical and loving nature and traveling!

Portrait study 03: Limited colour palet

The challenge was the use of a limited colour palet. In this case I used turquoise and burnt sienna plus black and white to create the portrait of a young boy. (Photo reference: My own.)
