Your face is poetry by alicexz Your face is poetry by alicexz

PURCHASE A PRINT HERE

*purplekecleon suggested we do some "limited palette" painting studies for practice the other day. So she gave me these five cool colors (in the bottom right corner) and I used them to paint this rough portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch (aka Sherlock Holmes aka congratulations on your face.) Drawing with a pre-determined palette is a great artistic exercise, I highly recommend it! Try exchanging a color palette with a friend, it makes it fun. :) Or do any of the various color memes floating around dA!

Do you mind if I find inspiration in this style?
I will credit you, I will use oil pastels and I will draw Daenerys, not Benedict
I would love to have something that is precisely in that style (I love it!)
