Elements of design

" Frenchman with Line"
A Myrna Wacknov challenge

Several months ago Myrna Wacknov had some challenges on her blog based on a photo that she took during a Mike Bailey workshop in the Dordogne. Thus this picture is purely an experiment and the Frenchman image belongs to Myrna. She had us work with the Line element of design. This one I did on Tyvec using acrylic paints. Doing experiments is so freeing -- it gives me permission to fail so I don't worry about ruining my painting.

A lovely portrait. Very characterful. Nice subtle colors that don't detract from the interesting face.
