self portrait 4 (retry)


Title: self portrait 4 (retry)
Year Created:
Medium: Oil
Surface: Canvas
Dimension: 48x36

The face is distorted on purpose.
Im including the negative photo just bc I think it looks interesting. The painting itself is the first one.

Anything. Does it "work" for you?
How it makes you feel, or how you interpret.

'orange' seems a primal scream, in slow motion, whispering
'blue' seems more feminine and she's in a bit of a pout
definitely more drama/emotion with orange. (the face shifts to the right with blue).
it's certainly emotive, which is always a treat

Thanks la, always helpful to hear how others see it.
The face does shift to the right, I was playing around with long exposure on my camera.

Tom, spoiler alert next time please!
just kidding. Its the second time someone has mentioned voldemort in relation to my paintings though...perhaps something evil is afoot in my brain.
