another finger painting....

just trying to let it go...not worry about the end result....I just started smearing paint around......and kept at it until I liked the shape and could see a face in there. At first I had eyes closed but I swear I saw a face in there with eyes open that really wanted to be seen. This is the end result......

more Jay Park artwork......

Since I seem to have developed a Jay Park brain lately.....I have been working on some more artwork of him using techniques I am currently studying in an art course I have been taking.

This was the first colored painting I have ever done of Jay Park. I wanted to try a technique using shades of black, grays and go all the way up to whites.....which I still cannot do very well. I then added color to the background. This is very hard for me for some reason.....so I am going to have to keep practicing this to try and improve.

I had done the following sketch of JP some time back with graphite and charcoal but felt it was not that good.......so I then took pics of it with my camera and changed tint settings...I like the color tinted version I think better

I really liked working on this last piece....I basically did a sketch with graphite pencil and added a watercolor crayon base in yellow....followed by staining with red iron oxide.......and then adding the blues.....love how it turned out
