Look 1: Session 1 - FACE the CANVAS

A personal project where I explore the idea of putting mixed media artwork on a model's face vs. the traditional idea of creating artwork from a model portrait, I'm happy to share some of the final edits from Look 1: Session 1 - FACE the CANVAS.

Working in collaboration with creative MUA/H Evelyn Affleck, hairstylist Jen Mathison and model Sierra Tasi Baker, and inspired by the artwork of Danny O'Connor (aka (DOC)), this painterly makeup application explores colour, texture and shape.

Using a combination of makeup, traditional and non-traditional application tools and actual acrylic paint, the final looks are truly artistic masterpieces. Evelyn, your work on this was outstanding and I'm looking forward to sharing Look 2 from this same session very soon.
