Well these are my first attempts at a style of portrait…
I bought a couple of palette knives the other day and really like using them. I have painted several canvases over and over again just with one colour enjoying myself. Tried a few different things and all looked pretty crappy… HOWEVER it is possible to cover it all up and start again!
So this is new for me and generally I’m trying not to be too worried about how a picture turns out and instead have a bit of fun!

Martin’s portrait was much harder and is not as effective as the other, partly because it’s more fiddley and I had to use a paintbrush and so the paint’s not as thick and there are little gaps. Anyone know anything about these things? Tips? Ah well. Live and learn!
