Katya and Natasha
Back to portraits, for a little while. I am enjoying playing with more feminine colors…so much brighter than my dark and brooding abstracts. These are light and airy, and oh so fun. I love painting faces…and yes, it IS all about the eyes, isn’t it???
Katya – 6 x 6 inch acrylic painting on Ampersand gessobord (SOLD, thank you!)
I love those pastel looking colors in her face….there was a lot of layering here, and it was really a pure joy do this. I had such fun with these candy colors!
Natasha – 6 x 6 inch acrylic painting on Ampersand gessobord (SOLD, thank you!)
These ladies remind me of lovely ballerinas.
I had no reference images for these, I just drew some loose pencil marks onto the boards, and went from there. I can see the benefits of lots of practice! Both paintings are now available in my online Etsy shop, ArtcyLucy Studio.
I have a few more portraits I am working on, and I will share them with you soon!
