Face Tamara style

I was inspired to have another play at face drawing by my lovely friend Julie Ann. Her Snowqueen was so beautiful and she reminded me that I must go back to Kim Dellow's blog and join in with the Friday face.

I did a little research on female portrait artists and was captivated by the bold, art deco style of Tamara de Lempicka.

So, I had a play and decided to concentrate on the bold shapes that are created on her faces. I used Black, White and Gold acrylic paint for these 2 faces. Lots of places to go with this style...need to do more.

I shall include this on Kim Dellow's face on Friday Challenge.


  1. Amazing, absolutely amazing Hazel, fabulous shading and tones. Love them! Ruth x

  2. A great take on Tamara de Lempicka's beautiful Art Deco style! Wow! x

  3. So good! Fantastic take on Tamara Lempicka's style.

  4. Ooh, they definitely have a Russian feel - like those amazing propaganda posters from the teens, 20s and 30s - and I mean that in a good way - they are such powerful images, as are your faces. Okay... so I've just been to look up Tamara de Lempicka and see that apart from geographical borders I'm definitely in the right area! Glorious b&w shading too...
