Face Exploration 2


I went very big, detailed and full of brush strokes on the first face study I did. I went the opposite way with this one. It is still kind of big but I only hint the features of a face, keeping it very simple and playful. I only share these studies so you can see my journey.

  1. Un très joli contraste de jeu de lumière et d'ombre caractérise ce portrait.
    En l'admirant, je vois deux portraits. Je m'explique ! Je vous rassure, je n'ai pas bu !... Je vois le visage physique et ses yeux nous font pénétrer dans son esprit et nous renvoie une autre image !... Je suis un peu "tordue", n'est-ce pas !
    Une belle peinture aux nuances de couleurs toujours aussi merveilleuses.
    Gros bisous

    1. Thank you Martine. Glad you like it. I also like the fact that you got a personal experience from it. Art is personal. If you don't get any reaction from a painting, then there is a problem.

  2. Can you evaluate each time what you are after with this series?
    Do you have a favorite of the heads you have done so far, and if so, will you try repeating the technique you used?

    1. Thank you for your comment Julie.
      My favorite face so far is the last one I painted. I will post that one later. I take things I like with me, but I also let process guide me. Sometimes I go more realistic and detailed, other times I go more abstract.
