I ♥ Faces - Texture challenge

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It **Update on this post*** I'm happy to say that this image placed #2 out of 639 entries in the contest!! I feel very honored, there were so many great images!




I use textures on a regular basis in my work, both with portraits and fine art.
So when I saw that I ♥ Faces was doing a weekly challenge for textures, I naturally had to enter.
The hard part was picking a favorite, because there's so many that I like.
I finally settled on this one, I loved the rich colors that resulted from the texture use.

I have a whole post from this session on the blog from last November if you care to take a look. Many other textured ones there too.
