Facial Expressions: ‘Anxiety’

This is my second digitally painted portrait on the iPad Pro. I am currently focussing on facial expressions, this one shows anxiety. I edited this image to create a dark shadow around her head (which was previously a bright yellow.) It’s amazing how colour affects emotions and the reading of an artwork.

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. 🙂
