First attempt at an opera figure… Bizet’s Carmen.
12″x 12″, with studio edges, this piece took me roughly four hours, and is entirely from my head. How I imagined Carmen would look. Can any opera enthusiasts guess the scene portrayed?
I like it, it’s not exactly what I had pictured, but whenever I experiment with new styles, I have to change my expectations to suit my skills. I am definitely going to try Carmen again at some point, and I think I have truly learned how to paint a face! (That accomplishment was a long time in coming.)
