Today was the day to continue with portrait 2 and what a frustrating day everyday of trying to go forward today didn’t work. My aim was to produce contours of the face with fabric.
I was trying to find a way of transferring the photoshopped image to fabric and then build the contours of the face up with layers of fabric.
I tried using a
- Light box
- Freezer paper
- Iron interfacing
- Painting the lines with inks
- Free hand drawing
None of these were successful so in the end I decided to draw the basic outline and then build up the colours freehand as I do when painting.
Painting the contours with inks worked well on a previous picture but that was because the portrait was large.
