So Sam and Steph reminded me of a painting today. One that I did in Art Fundamentals that I'm pretty proud of and would like to share with everyone here. It's a self portrait that we had to paint using three methods or theories that we learned in our colour theory class. I chose a triatic colour choice, primary colours, and chiaroscuro.
I really like how well it turned out. Throughout the years I've been trying to get a good grasp of chiaroscuro because one of my favourite artists, and influences, is Caravaggio. If you haven't heard of him, it will be worth your while to look up some of his works. Amazing.
I should probably add that this was painted traditionally with acrylic on paper.

This was an assignment done for my digital class. The painting is supposed to have a head and a hand showing a single emotion. My emotion was sadness. I feel like I succeeded at showing the emotion but it looks like the sadness is there due to a very bad toothache. This is probably one of my fastest paintings as well. Done in about 2 and a half hours.
