Launching a new series

Scent of a Rose
12x16 inches
Coloured pencil on Canson Ash Grey Mat Board
A big thank you to my son's beautiful girlfriend Tash who allowed me to do a photo shoot with her and I am going to use these photos for my new series which will explore the use of the human face as a canvas for creativity. I want to combine the elements of realism, trompe l'oeil and whimsy to try to develop a bit more creativity with my portraits - an area I have always struggled with.

Tash is an extremely talented musician, singer and song writer and has a big following on YouTube, has won many awards for her singing and song writing skills and is constantly in demand for gigs so I was extremely grateful when she gave up an afternoon of her time to help me out.
