Actually, maybe this is just an excuse, and I'm just a lopsided creator! ha! Anyway, I'll just keep sticking to my own style--these portraits feel more alive to me, somehow, in their "skewness."
Spent lots of time on this one--gouache, ink, acrylic, pastel, oil stick--just kept adding to her.
Look how my different camera-angle taking gave this chiquita a completely different look.
