Portrait challenge

Thursday, November 12, 2020

I belong to an online art group. Since Covid invaded my life and two very active puppies came too, well I haven't done much in the way of creativity. But, I love a challenge and they have a portrait challenge right now. I joined in. I was sent this photo, which is pretty terrible! and had to figure out how to do a decent portrait with the image I was given.



I worked in pastels and using my knowledge of skin tone I did my best to portray her in a complimentary way, so here is my finished work.



Now we are supposed to exchange our portraits. I haven't seen anything done for my portrait, but I am awaiting the result. I will try to post it once I see it. I hope it is nice.

    Gosh, the lighting on that photo really leaves a lot to be desired. You did a fabulous job on that portrait! Whoever she is, she's bound to be pleased.

    Wow... I think you did a wonderful job. I love art ! I have never used pastels but I like to paint with acrylics. I have not painted for a few years, just seems like I never have the time. But, seeing your art makes me want to get out the paint brushes again. Congrats! Beautiful ! Very talented. emoticon

    That's such a fun challenge! I keep meaning to improve my drawing skills (I bought watercolours at the beginning of the pandemic but have hardly used them!) but never seem to make the time
