Enigma

Posted by Phil Morris (Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada) on 26 January 2017 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Black and white photo, sepia toned, then using Dr. Martin's Airbrush watercolours which I
used exclusively to easily paint the black and white image. One drop of red, half yellow
and two sepia with water for the face paint, it can be applied either with a long q tip
type stereo cleaner, but not a q-tip as it can easily scratch. It also can be applied by
an airbrush and small lines of the eyelashes with a 00 paint brush. Reworked the eyebrows,
lashes, lips, black and white. In effect I use a lot of the Hollywood retouch procedures
which I use in a more modern method at this time. Last of the Enigma series I believe !
I shall be gone for a spell, I must work on more photos.

Wow. Dr. Martin's Airbrush watercolors. I have not thought about that for a long time. As a retired high school art teacher, we used that when I taught airbrush. Lovely work.

Wow, this is pure Beauty and offers such a peaceful serene feel, thanks - we need it in such turmoiled times with crazy ones at the wheel. Glamour is good then to balance the mood.
