Working on Portraits

These are "layered" portraits. I'm using a photo I took in Victoria a few years ago.

I have worked in photo shop and taken the photo down to 5 layers… each layer represents a color.

The colors are to be unrealistic…. so it's a little out of my comfort zone…

I've completed the hair separately…. but it's too dark, so I need to do it again…

I love her hairband… so I will make a feature of that, even though her face is yellow and purple.

In taking the photo to layers…. I have lost the definition in her eyes and garments… however, quilting will correct that.
