Since it has been a while since I have done a portrait, I decided to do this as a warm up because I also have decided to do a portrait online course for 2019, called Lets Face It, by Kara Bullock. I actually learned about it during the challenge when a couple of artists were discussing courses that they took. I haven't taken courses or workshops, so I decided to treat myself and I found the cost was very reasonable. What I find most intriguing about it is that this course is a 50 week course and is taught by 24 different artists in modules of several weeks working in all the different medias. Since a lot of the instructors work with mixed media I felt that was a perfect fit. Some even do abstract faces which again triggers my interest levels. Only hope I am up to the challenge of being disciplined enough to do the projects.
The Sorceress is done with highlights of oil over the acrylic. I also have to admit that I love, love that dagger brush as it helped to do the hair strands easily. Female reference was an Asian lady from Pixabay, but I made her have more rounded eyes because I felt it really emphasized the eye makeup.
Thanks much for stopping by and taking a look.
