Portrait of Sam - Timelapse Included

Portrait of a friend of mine that I did recently. This one is my favourite portrait that I have done so far, and the one I've enjoyed working on the most! It was her first time sitting down to model for anyone and she found the session enjoyable. I also started getting into recording timelapse videos. I have a lot of fun sliding the movie bar back and forth and watching the colours... lol

Re: Portrait of Sam - Timelapse Included

Fascinating to watch the video! Wonderful portrait. It was so fast that i couldn't tell what type of pastels you were using. Mainly hard pastels? And almost mid-way, when you outlined her face again with dark, was that black pastel or charcoal? In any case, the end result is great! Thanks for sharing!

Mike

Re: Portrait of Sam - Timelapse Included

Thanks Mike! I use Rembrandt pastels as well as a black Stabilo pastel pencil and a white Derwent pastel pencil. I've been wanting to add some softer pastels to my set. Lately been thinking of trying out Terry Ludwig and Schmincke. I'll probably order some of each online today to try out.

Thanks for sharing the video! It was really interesting to see how you created this vibrant portrait. First came the basic structure of the face and then the colors seemed to dance around until the person emerged.

Re: Portrait of Sam - Timelapse Included

Thanks for watching Donna For a lot of my paintings I do the initial block-in of important shapes and then I paint by specific colours. For instance, I pick up a red stick, I go around the entire painting where I see red or I feel could use red. Pick up the next stick and so on and so on. Closer to the end I do the details.
