This is chapter 2 of my journey, and it’s also the last chapter. After about a week, I finally finished my first art project. I’m so proud of because it came out exactly how I envisioned.
I did experience one tiny mishap during my painting project. I needed mustard yellow, and when I twisted off the cap to squeeze some of this color out of its tube, it was completely dry. Luckily, I had another yellow as back up and added a spot of dark brown to make it more of a golden. Problem solved, but the moral here is: I definitely need to look at the condition of the paints before I buy them.
The whole point of this painting is to take advantage the colors to expose the human psyche, so I began filling in the skin. Both figures in the picture you see above is the same person. It’s the alter egos, and the middle figure is bright red because that’s the exaggerate public personality that others are exposed to. My favorite part of this painting was the hair. I just love making the swirly tips. They’re my signature design, and I made sure my signature swirls were visable in the hair of the blue figure.
Actually, this is not the last chapter to the journey because I want to add more details in the white curly hair, the eyes, and the yellow pedals. But for now, I’m very pleased with my work. Now to continue the self-analysis, the green arm is the connection between the public appearce and the private apperance of an individual. You could say the arm pulls a person back to their original self. The circle formed by the hair and the body is the cycle that an individual experiences on a daily basis, but I don’t want to get too psychoanalytical. It’s just the image I conjured up after thinking about the power of color.
