Usually when we speak about portraits on the blog, it’s Linda’s children’s portraits that take center stage. Today I wanted to talk more about mixed media freestyle, because it’s a process I love, and have had the pleasure of being a part of a number of times, as the first step is also a signature makeup technique of Linda’s. You arrive, a simple make up is done, you’re wearing something very simple, a tank top, or as a man, you’re bare chested. Then the paints are brought out. You start to move, nothing wild, just gently lift your arm or turn your head, a brush moves across your face, down your arm. You begin to wonder as you loosen your posture how you are transforming. What’s taking place? Photos are taken, and then you have some scrubbing to do, a colorful shower in order. You go home, and Linda gets to work.
