Jami's Portrait ©Jami Childers
This past weekend we had tons of fun at the home of Francesca Tabor-Miolla in Jacksonville with the Society of Mixed Media Artists. Fourteen students came to learn the art of Paper Painting with me. What a great group. We even had two women from the Orlando area, Aurore and Clair, who I actually did not know previously!
Jami did a terrific job with the hair, flowing and patterned just the right amount. She took my advice and made the skin tones a more restful area, which really allows the hair to stand out. Her eyes look so real, she used multiple greens within them and the perfect highlight on each. Jami got these great skin tones by ripping up some watercolor portraits she had done, but was unhappy with. Repurposed art! I love her use of purple in the hair and in the shadows of the face, the salmon color ties in really nice in contrast with the purple, in the lips and hair and corners of the eyes.
Jami is a wonderful portrait artist and she was eager to finish her piece, she went home and worked on this so she could send me a photo to share. Now she says she is hooked.
