Before we went out of town, I began playing with abstract portraits. I wanted to create something heavy on brushstrokes, with only a hint of actual portrait. Didn’t work; I kept adding lines. Sooooo, I kept the brushstroke layers that were the original sketches and worked them in. The results were what you see above.
Just an experiment, but figured it’d be fun to share! Haven’t yet decided if I’ll offer prints of these portraits, but will update when/if I do.
Blue Lady. Nope, not from a photo. Offset layers. Individual layers done in Corel Painter. Blending modes added in Adobe Photoshop.
