WIP: Expressionist Busts

Okay here we go... Limit of 1 hour per bust to stay loose!



Bust 1 was hard to fight the instinct to blend.

Bust 2 was a bit better...
Here's the palette...
 Here they are together: 2.5 hours painting approx.
Number 3 came out nice. I liked the face and aromur.
 Again the palette...
 The progress of letting go...
Bust 4 is the most sketchy. Really pleased with her shirt...
 The palette...
 4 busts - 4 hours...

We'll stop here. 4 more to do next time. Would you try this to break out of your comfort zone or does every mini have to be perfect?

Thanks for looking, leave me some comments and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :)

  1. Wow, Those look nice. I definitely don't subscribe to every mini being perfect, but I often stumble into half completed units. I need to find a new goal to get me going again.

    1. Well a new style can always help. Maybe going for bigger areas of contrast like a more cartoony sketch would help speed thing along. Less detail more impressions of what the overall image should be from across the table.

By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
