This is my second digitally painted portrait on the iPad Pro. I am currently focussing on facial expressions, this one shows anxiety. Initially I made the shading behind her head bright yellow but that was too cheerful. It’s amazing how colour affects the reading of an artwork work and how it affects our emotions.
I did use a blue background which I also incorporated into the skin tones of my subject, this I feel definitely adds successfully to the emotional reading of the piece. I’d love to hear your comments and feedback. 🙂
