Thank you, Jeff Hein, for your valuable comment on my work. Congratulations to all the winners and participants!
"A Wedding Procession" - Oil on gessoed board The bride and her family make their way to the groom's house before going to the temple for the marriage ceremony. (Taking pictures of the painting was the hardest part! The colours of the face ended up being a bit too dark but I didn't know how to fix it without feeling like I would ruin what I had already done) The reference pictures are from my relatives wedding
"The Faces of Jake" approx. 16*20, graphite on stretched paper I used this group portrait as an opportunity to not represent different people, but rather different emotions. I enjoyed playing with the subtly of different features and how small changes in the eyebrows or eyes can change the whole expression of the face.
An early breakfast of trout, corn cakes, and herbal tea (served with heated pebbles in a turtle shell) along the banks of the Schuylkill River, east-central Pennsylvania, December 1758. Digital and traditional watercolor and colored pencil.
