As an artist, nay, as a human my quest is to always increase my skill and ability to express what it is that I’m feeling or want to show as feeling on whatever presents itself as a canvas. In this series, this expression of emotions is coming out through facial expressions.
This portrait series is going to be fairly large and extensive, so far I’ve got 13 done or in the works, with another 17 expected.
I’m working with acrylics, spray, indian ink, pen, pencils, and sharpies which will naturally expand the further I go with this. I usually use a straight blade to paint, but as faces generally aren’t jagged, I’ve been using my rounded blade. Kind of a cool transition for me to understand.
It’s proving fascinating for me to get inside of each of these portraits, for it’s forcing me to sit down and breathe slowly and work on the little details. I’m finding the process is oddly subtractive and incredibly exhilarating diving into the details.
Advanced orders are available, with a color palette of your choice.
This is a sneak peak.
