DRAW: Painted Portraiture

The Left: A burnt sienna under-painting working as a value study for the forthcoming colors.

The Right: Final rendering with colors and increased contrast between areas of light and dark.

Created for my painting class this semester in which we had to paint four different paintings, all depicting the face or head in some way. Originally, I was going to do all of them (like the one above) via photo reference. However, when it came time to put the paint to the paper, I decided to use the ol’ imagination machine (my brain) and paint the “Aztec” deities I’ve been drawing.
