These female portraits are inspired by editorial beauty photography models, painted in vibrant and sometimes experimental colors on thick watercolor painting. The paper was chosen as it has a really interesting structure. To create these pieces, a thin layer of gesso was used to make the paper paintable. Starting with a brightblue underlayer, the painting was finished with about 3-5 extra layers to build up the paint and give them a deep and interesting color experience. 

 

All portraits on this page are painted on a 25x25cm square paper. Interested in a piece?
