Last week’s Let’s Face It lesson was taken by Muriel Stegers. I had to improvise a fair bit with the materials and I didn’t follow the subject of the portrait but I did paint over collage, use metallic paints, and lots of dribble which were major elements in the lesson.
I am not sure how I feel about my outcome. I like the degree of blending in the skin tones and I like the metallic elements, especially the bronze irises. I also like that the collage layer adds a layer of interest to the background. However, the ear lobe is too high on the head, I think the liberal use of metallic paint might be a bit overwhelming, and I think all the dribble at the bottom of the painting detracts from the face.
