This is a 4″x6″ mini portrait painting of a young woman and man. Mediums used include watercolor, markers, paint pens, acrylic paints, pens, colored pencils, and crayons. After working with abstracts for a prolonged period of time, an attempt was made at portrait paintings again. Some of the abstract qualities from previous artworks were maintained in the background and loosely painted hair, while finer details like the noses and mouths were worked and reworked to a breaking point. While painting accurate portraits can require attention to these details, some lingering sense of impressionistic mark making has still been achieved.

    Michael,
    You have captured the young man to a T but I have to say the girl is prettier in real life. Very nice, though.

    Great use of colour – really makes it stand out of the canvas
