A Portrait in the Abstract

Winter Complexion

Abstract portrait Contest Entry 
This was a homecoming photo of one of our granddaughters. Using many methods as listed below...I gave it as much of an abstract as I think she would tolerate. :D

I cannot claim to get into the mood of an abstract. But I know enough art history to know there were many related movements in the Abstract era. The hand on the cheek in Edward Munch's "The Scream" is expressionism and a bit of Picasso's surrealism in an oblong face and slightly dropped eye may be vaguely appearing in this work. I should have tried to create a "tongue in cheekism " to play along with just how serious of an abstract artist I am.... LOL!

Unlike the artists mentioned above this began as a photograph. Post processing tools are listed.

Thanks to Allan Oak for creating another fun contest. And thanks for viewing.
