iPhone Portrait

Julia Kay, originally uploaded by purple0wl.

If you’re keen on painting portraits, you’ll never be short of a model at Julia’s Portrait Party. Flickr groups, as far as I know, are all free to join, and this portrait group is a splendid opportunity.

Post up a photo of yourself for others to paint, and lo and behold, before you lies your choice of over a hundred fascinating faces to paint as you desire.

Marvellous. Not only does this give you an ever-increasing choice of mug shots young and old. The huge range of styles that other artists have used are sure to give you ideas.

You’ll find the Portrait Party here.

This portrait of Julia Kay was finger painted on my iphone. I laid down the foundations of her face with the app Gesture, working on the portrait itself in Brushes. Texture and lighting were added with the help of Photo Studio and Photo FX.

We used to say 'Seeing is believing'. Now it's more like 'Believing is seeing'. We see what we expect to see. Look again and who knows. Does it really match what's actually there? ...I've always been fascinated by how our minds work. As a writer and artist, I'm particularly interested in new research into how we perceive this extraordinary world we live in, where things are not always what they seem.
