abstract portrait painting

I had to have a go at #Facetasticfriday an Instagram Challenge that I co-host on @kickinthecreatives. This week the guy in the photo has such a great face.

I thought his expression looks like he was thinking “Give me Strength!”. It’s like one of those days when you come out of your house to find someone has parked directly opposite your drive, so you can’t get your car out.

I thought it would be fun to have little doodle creatures antagonising him and sticking their tongues out.

It was painted using Lyra Aquacolor on which I haven’t used for a while but really enjoyed. If you want to try out water-soluble wax pastels, these are a fantastic price on Amazon at the minute. It was painted on – Canson Imagine Mixed Media paper
