Here's something I've been working on for a little while now, let me tell you, when you want to grow and learn, there's nothing like trying something totally new.
"Tricky" isn't the word I'd use for this one, more like "I hope this works!" Such an odd angle, unusual colors I had to mix and mostly low key values and not to mention the layers and layers and then more layers to get just the right walrus skin tones.
I think it came out pretty nice, I'm definitely going to try something like this again.
I had a great experience giving a portrait demo at Guy Magallanes' fantastic space today. Met some pretty terrific people who I hope I've inspired to try out portrait painting.
In a couple of weeks I'll be teaching the portrait workshop there and cannot wait! This is gonna be fun!
(There's still some space available and I'd love to meet you!)
