Pretty in pink with her big hoop earrings.
@contemplating_the_moon sent me her photo so I could paint her portrait.
It’s one thing to paint portraits from the imagination.
Something else altogether to paint people you know. It could cause a lot of difficult feelings either way.
When a friend asked me to join her for a week long abstract figure painting class, my first and only question was:
Just how abstract can I be?
These small, original portraits are painted on top pages cut and upcycled from my sketchbooks.
This portrait is from the series, 100 Portraits in 100 Days: A Quarantine Diary.
What began as a creative challenge to focus my energies during the first weeks of solo quarantine in March 2020, evolved into a diary of my experience.
Materials: Acrylic, Ink, Wax, Graphite on Paper
