This week in art

I have always admired a style of portrait that uses a lot of colour, and thanks to Yuri Malkov's excellent iColorama tutorial, Here are my first two attempts.

The portraits are based on these two photos from Pixabay.

In an earlier post, I showed a teaser for a crochet project I had in the works. I have now finished my cocoon jacket. I think it turned out great!

Edit: I forgot to include the link to the great how-to video from YarnUtopia.
