An interesting and challenging week is over, a #oneweekportrait - week to be precise.
If you have not heard about it, it is a challenge hosted by paintable via facebook where it is possible to participate in a community to create a portrait painting in 5 steps, each day one step.
I'm not a beginner so I started there just for fun, but I challenged myself by using just the round brush in PS up to day 4.
Participating turned into a big motivation - as David, the founder of paintable wants from everyone - to create their best portrait possible.
And he gives a lot of pointers and resources along the way, which is very nice.
