Timelapse Portrait Study


2 HOURS STUDY PAINTING FROM PHOTO REFERENCE

I saw this photograph of a reconstructed sculpture of an Iceman, a 5,300-year-old mummy also called Ötzi discovered in the Alps and thought he had great character to attempt to capture. I failed on the likeness but it was great fun, and I tried to push the textures in my work a little more than usual.

I picked up a great brush from the Charlie Bowater Skillshare Class which is soft and chalky and great for blocking out loose shapes with softer edges.


TIMELAPSE CAPTURE OF THE PAINTING FROM START TO FINISH

2 hours distilled into 15 mins approx. I hope this is insightful to you. I'm hoping to document these to highlight my flaws and amend my workflow to address them.
