Pattern and Portraiture by DragonTreasureArt Pattern and Portraiture by DragonTreasureArt
I've been having an arty weekend playing with portraiture. I found this fantastic stock image here on DA [link] by =Dxlogic 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

Comments and constructive feedback are welcome as always.

I am also in love with colours and used to make stained glass windows (still do occasionally) which is why this was so much fun to paint :-)
Thanks for commenting :-)
