Very different from other portrait distortions, I actually think the Poor Traits II portfolio is stunning rather than... well, ugly. Well executed, the pieces in this collection look more like forms of water color painting than anything else.

Created by artist Petra Cortright, the Poor Traits II portfolio not only demonstrates her creativity but also her ability to make something that's already beautiful even more so in its uniqueness. I suggest, however, you check out Cortright's other series to see just how crazy she can get. Stats for Seriously Smudged Portraitures Trending: Older & Chilly
