What the… I don’t even know y’all. Apparently I can do realistic portraits?! I had no idea haha. Tried to tighten things up a bit in this one and experiment with different colors. I really think I’m understanding color more! I repeated several colors throughout the piece to tie everything together. Used a few Photoshop filters (as I’m still struggling to get the correct contrast right off the bat,) but not as many which I think is an improvement!
I really like how you can still see the “layers” of paint and texture of the brushes, not crazy about that super smooth butter paint.
