"no fear, only love"
acrylic on 9x12 watercolor paper
This past week I have been creating alot. I am not sure if it is because of all the emotional stress I have been going through but whatever it is art is healing. Based on this painting art is also obviously pulling stuff out of me! lol
I typically don't like watercolor paper because of the warping and bending that happens but I had a piece lying around. I had been wanting to try and paint a messy dark portrait. I have gotten away from sketching and painting my faces and I miss it. I must have spent 3 hours with this girl. I started out with watersoluble graphite pencils and water. I roughly drew her on the paper and added water, then I added white acrylics and liked what was happening. I added payne's gray to the background and decided to start using it on her face.
I drew the hanging hearts with a white gel pen at the end and the words popped into my head. After she was done I looked at her face and laughed! I thought about how the words didn't fit her freaked out expression! lol
Maybe it is what she is hoping to find. I know it is what I am hoping to find!
Maybe she is me . . .
