The finised product
The assignment is a family portrait. The idea is that they have just received the holy ghost (The birds as the symbol). The halo's represent becoming in a way enlightened. The medium used is holbeins acrylic gouche. It dries quick and allows for glazing for making color adjustments. The color was taken from A landscape that Mark English did in the past. I also use the tracing paper for the layout of the birds and for creating the faces thanks to watching the demo by Chris Payne I believe they came out ok. The approach in the clothing was taken from Sterling Hundley. Thanks Sterling. Finally the white teeth from Daniel Adel to bring in the focus by having the darkest dark next to the lightest light with the sharpest edge. One more thing I didn't know what to do with the bottom white but I thought it would bring interest into the composition, should I keep it or crop it?
Thank you for stopping by.
