Sketching Quirky Portraits

I am still away from my art studio and only have limited supplies with me. So, I am having to console myself with sketching quirky portraits with pencil in my tiny sketchbook. 

Now I can’t wait to get back to my art supplies so that I can collage some large backgrounds and transform these gals with some paint and colour.




Quirky Portraits

Today I am back to painting quirky portraits. I do love painting these. They are such fun to do and there is no pressure because I can just use my imagination. It is particularly easy with acrylic paints because it is easy to correct things when you change your mind.

In fact I decided to correct part of the last quirky portrait that I was not happy with.I had originally written headache above her right eye, but I decided I didn’t like it.I had already prepared the background some weeks ago for my next Quirky Portrait. So today I added her face. I am very happy with her.These portraits are both painted on a 12″ x 16″ deep edged canvas using acrylic paints on a collaged background.
