And I always said that I don’t do portraits …Posted: July 20, 2013
Okay, so the slightly strange commission I’ve completed this week was a leaving present for someone.
Apparently they are a huge fan of a popular reality TV programme, in which one of participants created a portrait using elements from different faces.
So my brief was to use the following photographs to create a portrait.
Now, portraits are not something I ever really try to tackle, I think it’s because the slightest error in placing a line can make such a huge difference. Faces are so very familiar to us, especially close friends, celebrities and family (But, as I’ve been told, a fried egg just looks like a fried egg).
So I used the lady with the blonde hair as the base figure. Ash she was the recipient/subject of the portrait I decided to use her eyes and nose.
The beard definitely had to be used.
I rather liked the distinctive hair of the second gentleman, but instead opted to use his mouth, so I could use the second lady’s hair style and colouring.
Very attractive, I’m sure you’ll agree.
