Paper Portraits

"The Love Letter"

Going back over my photo files, I've rediscovered a favorite subject of mine - portraits. These are mostly fictional characters which I created a few years ago, using layered papers and Pigma pens.


In both of the above portraits I used different papers to play with the strands of hair, and commercial scrapbooking papers for the backgrounds.

I think the hand is too big in this one, or the mouth too small - haven't figured it out yet!

Last of all, a self portrait, called "Nature Filled", done as a result of an absolutely beautiful day, visions of which just stayed in my head for days.

Time to play with some new paper portraits -
coming soon!
