I'm getting ready for next weeks week-long Painted Quilt Art class in Phoenix, Az. with "Quilting In The Desert!" This length of class affords me time to do a demo portrait and I am always looking for a new challenge rather than relying on past fabric ink portraits. A throwaway local magazine carried a photo of an adorable young girl. As long as I am merely using this image for a personal refinement/ learning opportunity, it should be fine to use. Lest I contact the photo owner for permission, what I would NOT do is use this image in a finished portrait piece for public sale or competition.
So I did a 30 minute unfinished portrait to to bring human portrait skills back in focus ( I often paint wildlife) I like to go for soft... almost pastel chalk-look paintings of people... all using ink on fabric.
