I've been having an arty weekend playing with portraiture. I found this fantastic stock image here on DA [link]
and it inspired me the moment I saw it.
You can see all three pieces from this weekend together here: [link]
You can see my original sketch for a woodland messenger here: [link]
You can see the second study, in watercolour, playing with salts and blending here: [link]
This was the third piece, playing much more creatively with colour and pattern, similarly to some of my other recent pieces, very much inspired by *greno89
