Most of the expressionist portraits are painted using acrylics or oil paints. I decided to explore with markers for a change. With markers, I have to consider how the layers blend and layer with each other as it is transparent, just like watercolours.
While many colours can be used in creating these portraits, but my training as a designer forced me to find colours that are visually pleasing. Choosing unsuitable colours will create the effect of muddiness, which is not my intention of these portraits.
I was scared of messing up the colours and strokes. In the end, I decided to trust my instincts and create these two portraits in different colours.
