This is a portrait of Ilza for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I started with a vector drawing in the Inkpad app and imported it into ArtRage. I used the “canvas” setting and the Oil Paint brushes to give it a more painterly look.
This is the Inkpad only version. Some times it’s hard to decide whether to keep working on a portrait and to keep adding filters or to just leave it alone. One of the hardest parts of working this way is knowing when to call it finished. I wanted to keep this portrait very simple, thinking about the artist Alex Katz while working on it.
