Portrait Studies; interacting on Facebook
I was brainstorming the other day and it came to my attention that I needed to practice with portrait studies, so I decided to engage on my Facebook(I use it frequently) . It allows me to challenge myself in practice with portraits and also show those who love my work or are interested what I can do! Overall with portrait studies I am used to doing super rich skintones and this allowed me to practice with yellow/orange undertones versus using purple and blue with burnt umber.
With this specific portrait study it allowed me the chance to use some of my gold leaf, which adds a nice pop to this piece.
