I took a photo and played with it in my photo program and came up with something that looked like it might be fun to try to paint.
Painting here -
The painting is on Tyvek that I pretreated by brushing a thin coat of acrylic matte medium over it (so the paint didn't totally bubble up off the tyvek).
There are some things to change:
I don't like the white stripes I used to separate the colors because they seem too strong now, esp. on the right side, so maybe I'll carry the "black" through to the right side of the painting; and I need to shape the face a bit more but maybe it's about right.
What do you think? Love it or hate it? I'm doing anything to keep from doing a traditional self-portrait (out of fear that I can't do it?).
Well, do leave your comments BUT
I'm taking a little driving trip for a few days and will return soon to see what you've posted about this one. Be back soon!
