This March instagram challenge “ Portrait Challenge 2019” created by August Wren and Ohn Mar Win was hands down my favourite challenge so far! I discovered painted faces, famous faces really interested me, certainly something I looked forward to daily. It gave me more confidence in my work and and forced me to do something that I didn’t do very often and didn’t feel comfortable doing. Looking forward more of this going forward. Most of these images were created in watercolour, gouache and very slightly enhanced on photoshop. Frida Kahlo was the only one I did in acrylics and it took much longer . Since I was under the constraint of doing one a day, some of them were a bit rushed I have to admit. But I think that was a good thing, because I didn’t have the time to agonize over them-I just did and hoped for the best!
