Self-Portrait: Blue Period?
Using blue was originally supposed to be the under-painting of a full-coloured portrait. Getting the proportions down and all. Turned out better than I thought, though, and decided to keep it that way.
The rough stages of a painting is typically my favorite part of painting a piece; everything is still raw and loose, and I'm not afraid to get a little ugly.
Phthalocyanine Blue is such a yummy colour, but a little hard to use (one of those wierd-to-mix paints). Can't pass up the chance to splatter it about in a painting every once in a while :)
Now I just got to work on my face... Something less fierce/stunned, and..."bunny"-like, according to my sister. Can I help it if my face just so happens to be comfortable in that pose??
