First portrait of 2021
So I have a love-hate relationship with my creativity somedays. I absolutely love using canvas panels because they give me better blending and a firmer working surface. I purchased me a 5pk of 12 inch by 16 inch canvas panels from Michaels on Tuesday and I have had a burst of energy and inspiration ever since. It feels amazing to not feel slumped in artist block! I say all of this to say that I have had a great start for my week and this portrait is inspired by UK music artists Greentea Peng. This piece allowed me to challenge myself with skin tones that I need practice with since I'm use to creating richer skin tones. With this piece I also went with the flow and added a nice pop of color to the background. I hope you all like it!
