I've been doing more variations on my Inkscape Portraits and as usual, I"m ahving a lot of fun with the process.
This time around, I'm working off of older photographs that I took before and reworking them with my Inkscapes. Doing so has really breathed new life into some old gems.
I started off from some photos of some horses that I photographed a few years back in Montauk, New York. I fancied the idea of creating a new type of speckled horse.
After that, I found some old photos of some family members that I took years ago at a family reunion. I started off with one of my Uncle Jimmy. When making these, sometimes it's hard to find the right Inkscape for the image so that it complements the subject of the portrait, rather than overpower it. I'm also sensitive to picking the right color because color sets the mood and in this case, I wanted to portray my uncle in a warm light.
With my grandfather, I found myself attracted to the same color scheme because it radiated an ethereal softness that represents is no longer being with us but yet still being a presence in our lives. I shared a little background on him on Instagram which you can read here.
