I haven't practiced portraits in a while so that is my topic for today. First, I did a quick sketch in pencil. Next, I used Golden Fluid Acrylics to paint my subject. Later, I added in some pencil shading.
For Day Seventeen of 30 Paintings in 30 Days, I chose the theme of squares and rectangles. Instead of painting the shapes individually, I experimented with blue painters tape to create the forms.
I used pastel shades of blue, purple and pink watercolor paints. Last, I outlined the shapes with watercolor pencils and activated the lines with water. I was going to add a design in the center of the piece but then decided to keep it simple.
Only thirteen more painting days to go in the Challenge. Are you in?
