Color where your face should be – Painting

An abstract color/texture study. The goal was to make it as chaotic as possible without disturbing any of the focal points (eyes, forehead, nose, mouth, and chin highlights). It turned out way more interesting than I’d expected and I’m proud of it 🙂

I think the fade-away effect on the head turned out well on the left side but should have been wider as the hair shadow ended up looking a little awkward. I also struggled with shading the very tip of the nose. I made the decision to use magenta/pink gradients there and it was tough to accentuate the highlight at the tip properly. Any feedback on problem areas would be great (I’m interested in revisiting this and improving it in a few weeks)
