Swipe on blue and finish portrait




First I took a four inch wide flat brush and swiped a random ultramarine blue stroke from top to bottom in direction. Towards the bottom, my swipe went to dry brush. This was not intended but worked out quite well within the mouth area. The sunglasses and facial features were painted on top of the blue swipe to make a very interesting combination of texture and expressive color.
