Acrylic on canvas board - 40 mins
Made use of another old canvas board I had once practiced textures with tissue paper on. It had a lot of bright red and gold paint all over it which was a little distracting to work with.
Another frowner I'm afraid and I'm biting the inside of my lip again!
Oh well, all practice.
Below are three versions of the same sketch.
I spent approx. 25 mins on the first, took a break and then went back into the studio and worked another 10 mins on the same sketch to produce the second image posted below, where I totally destroyed my own nose but I think I managed a more convincing angle on the whole of the facial features!
The third image shows the second image after an alteration in 'paint' program. (I don't have any fancy graphics software) I took the lower part of the nose and lifted it up and to the left slightly.
I posted this image because I think it shows wonderfully just how much difference a few millimetres can make to a portrait.
