Holly Hunter (INSPIRED BY AUTUMN COLOURS)


Today I have to show a portrait on  one of my monoprints. The face itself is made  with soft pastels , white gesso and Stabilo Mark It All pencil. I tried to portrait Holly Hunter - she is one of my favourite actresses - my favourite movie of all times is The Piano - with her and Harvey Keitel, whom I appreciate as well. This was my reference photo.

meant for ART JOURNAL JOURNEY - INSPIRED BY AUTUMN COLOURS
No.6 of 99 faces  &  KIM DELLOW'S - SHOW YOUR FACE.

  3. You have created a lovely likeness of Holly. I have always enjoyed her work. I really liked her in the TV series "Saving Grace." It was a bit dark, so that may be why I liked it. Not your mainstream TV (at least not mainstream American tv). Again, this is gorgeous.
