Colorful Portrait 2 with Watercolor Filter

I am taking Kara Bullock’s Let’s face It online painting class and for week 2 we were to use color in a different way or palette than our usual. I was inspired by a photograph on Pinterest and began using acrylic paints and then switched to some new Sennelier oil pastels that I hadn’t tried out yet. After taking a phot of the piece with my iPhone I thought it looked a bit harsh so ran it through Topaz Impression using a watercolor filter. I like the softened effect. It is such a blast to try a new way of producing a portrait. First use of oil pastels in creating a portrait and I really liked the messy fun of it all!

  1. This is sooooo cool. I just started watching the videos yesterday because I had a major project during January. I’m also behind in the Black and White Class.

    1. I am slowly going through the Black and White class; just in session two; so much information to try to process; plus all of the hands-on online classes… good problems to have- so much creative inspiration to work with!
