I’m working on improving my lighting and color schemes. I go for minimal compositions, and portraits work great for this exercise. My aunt has a very strong face,  plus being ginger, she is very colorful. I wanted to add some vulnerability to the skin texture,  so I made her into a waxy porcelain doll with embedded  patterns you’d normally find on china plates to create elegant tattoos.

Some close ups.
