I did 2 new portraits in my Diary of Faces this week.The first is my version of Swiss artist Ferdinand Hodler’s (1853 – 1918) An Italian Woman. I loved the colors in this one.
Then I tried a cropped version of South African artist Irma Stern’s Portrait of a Girl Eating Grapes, 1933. This one really needs a little more work but I’m out of painting time for the week so she got signed anyway. I’m really loving working in my Diary of Faces. The pages are sticking a bit so I’ve ordered some Dorland’s wax to see if that will help. I tried a spray on matte finish varnish but it didn’t seem to help much.
Sharing with the Paint Party Friday gang tomorrow.
