Barry

The portrait of our school model, Barry, is based on limited pallette of just two colours. I used  Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.  Titanium White  helped me create a variety of tones.  These colours worked  very well as the Burnt Sienna is a warm colour and Ultramarine Blue cools everything down. I haven´t manage to finish the background yet. However, I might  leave the edges unfinished as they somehow create an interesting “frame” of the portrait.

Although I can´t share with you the photo of Barry I can say responsibly that I got his likeness quite well. Feel free to see my step-by-step images below.
