Okay, here's some more abstraction! We were told to make an abstract portrait out of crayon (picture coming) or out of oil pastels. So I tried both—multiple times! One of these oil pieces was a shape study, while the other was an attempt to work with through a different technique. I personally loath both of the oil pieces—one of which I was really excited about until I overworked it! The shape study features a sunburn on steroids and the other is ghostly and has the highest cheekbones imaginable!
Haha, well the assignment was to explore the media and that's just what I did so I guess I can't complain...
