About my women-portrait project

I am getting more and more engaged in the women-portrait project that I have worked on for some time.
Right now I have been working with two different women models. I have wanted to make portraits, where I could work with different  expressions.

I startet to make a row of photos of both my models, where I asked them to try to express certain feelings. Now I could work with those photos and in between, especially one of the models sat live for me.
Now I wanted to try to make pencil sketch, watercolor painting and needlefelted portrait of the same expression and of the same woman. It showed up to look very interesting. I also made big water color paintings with two or three portraits on the same page.

Another thing I tryed, was to make a needlefelted portrait of my good friend Guri. She had shortly before got a part of her very long hair  cut off and I got the ponytail that was cut off, and I provided the needlefelted portrait with her own hair.
That gave such a surpricingly effect. (see below).            
I have still many ideas with different kinds of portraits that I want to work with, so what you see here is just a little of what I have worked with.

Watercolor with two different portraits of my model put together.

My model needle-felted  alive on a piece of transparent textile, that could float

-hanging out in the room.

Two examles of my needle-felted model, also needled on pieces of transparent textile.

If you look carefully at this needle-felted woman you can also see that she is needled on
a piece of transparent textile so she can hang out in the room like she is floating in the air.

Here´s my good friend Guri -another of my models and on the next photos you can

see how I worked with her portrait.

Here I made a watercolor portrait of her.

-and here she is needlefelted on a piece of tranparent textile and as you can see
she has got her own hair.
