We were set a difficult challenge - to use a limited palette of just 6 colours on a canvas size of 14"x18" with a brush size of a minimum of 1" to paint a portrait in 30mins.
The first is Richard painted in very extreme lighting:
My second is Richard reclining:
Next time we are going further and are using an even bigger brush to create our portraits. I think what I'm hoping to achieve is fewer, but more considered (and more correct!) brush marks...we'll see how it goes.
Have you seen these portraits?
