Warhol, portraits

Shafrazi's exhibition included many of the portraits shown in the original Whitney exhibition as well as others.

This volume takes Shafrazi's exhibition even further, nearly doubling the number of works shown...

Warhol pop art Brtitney Spears

Download the Britney Spears photo... and open it in your image processor Photoshop (or equivalent : Photofilter, Paint Shop Pro, GIMP ...)

The method used here ...

Here, at the beginning, the layers window:

window layers init

Duplicate the layer by > Layer> Duplicate Layer. Then hide the Background by clicking on its eye ... It is always better to work on a copy!

Copy of the back plane


Start now by checking on the toolbar on the left that foregroundcolors and background are selected on BLACK and WHITE.

Photoshop design front and rear


1 - Hiding the background

We must first get rid "white" areas of the photo ...

For this, I suggest you use the mask mode in Photoshop to isolate them easily ... (But if you know how to use the pen tool ... it is better !).

So click on the button mask mode in the toolbar. Select the brush, set its size (size 40 for example) and the black color (which should already be selected).

Now paint the areas you want to remove ... Selected areas appear pink. Do not worry if you have "overflowed" ... You'll be able to correct easily after !


Zones 1 masquéées

To correct overflowss you repaint, above, with white color at this time. Set your brush finest (size 10 for example) and paint on dark pink parts.

If you overflow again ... resume with black color to hide again ...

End mask mode

When all is OK, click the mask button a selection appears ...

Invert this selection:> Select> Inverse (Shift + Ctrl + i).

Remove this selection by pressing the Delete ...

Deselect before proceeding to the next step by:> Select> Deselect (Ctrl + D)


2 - Using threshold command

Duplicate the layer that you previously obtained ... > Layer> Duplicate Layer and name the new layer: WORK.

Click the eye of the Background Copy layer to make it invisible.


You will now apply the command Treshold by typing Image>Adjustments>Threshold . So, the image will be made ​​with only black and white colors without intermediaries tones .


I left the value 128 which is a good compromise ... Confirm with OK.

3 - Color Layer

Put the WORK layer in Multiply mode...

Switching to product

Then create a new layer: Name it : COLORS and place it below the WORK laye(> Layer> New> Layer) ...

Start painting Britney blond hair using the brush (size 30) ... (In fact, because of the multiply mode, the colors appear only on the white areas of the upper layer)


For other colors ... it should go faster since you will use the paint bucket tool of the toolbar. Set the tool options ... Select:contiguous and all layers.

Choose a flesh-color, and pour the color on the arms and face of Britney ... Similarly, color the Britney's hat ...

With the brush, finally, paint the lips and, why not, the whites of the eyes in bright orange ...
