View Full Version : Another Experiment

Here is another of the portraiture references for August, done up in mixed media as an experiment.

This started with a loose watercolor base, and then I added water soluble oil pastels, conte crayon and conte pencil to that.

At one point it was extremely well-balanced between the watercolor and drawing aspects and I really loved it. I ended up adding more conte and it is now a little overworked and heavy on the black, but I thought I'd share my results, in case it gives anyone some ideas.

Thanks for looking!

In spite of what you are saying Lori, it is very nice. I love the red with the black and the touches of yellow. Your combination is interesting and tempting to try. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Lori, Red and Black are my favorite colors.
I like the contrast and your choice of colors and also the fact that this woman looks content and peacefull.
