Difficult day on portrait 2

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
  • Tracing
  • 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.
