Portrait Studies

Personal Work, 2016

For this series, I wanted to emphasize the beauty of scars that are on our bodies. I chose models with different stories on how they got their scars. These marks forever stuck on are skin were from falling on a gate, a massive surgery, an animal attack, or more. Scars are marks that make us unique, no matter what their back story was. The color palette was based on purple, blue and pink hues. I used a splatter technique with the watercolor effect to give each one of the pieces and unique effect.
