So again I painted this weeks challenge from www.dailypaintworks.com
|original B/W portrait for reference|
These wonderful daily painters post a different challenge each week.
The Challenge was to Paint a Portrait of Abraham Lincoln
B. THE FULL COLOR CHALLENGE: Paint the portrait in color; translate the B&W image into a full color portrait using whatever colors on your palette you choose. This is actually a very revealing challenge.
I decided to use all colors on my palette with minimal mixing, really working on cool and warm colors. I also limited my time to one hour.
I invite you to check out the other entries, it is great to see other interpretations of the the challenge.
