This was an interesting project. We had to create a 4 page comic using only old black and white photographs. We couldn't draw it out in pencil or any media that was erasable/correctable. We are supposed to go straight into ink or any medium that was permanent. I used India Ink and Prismacolor Grayscale markers.
This is probably the first actual self portrait I painted.
Oil 18 x 24
This painting was fun. It started out as a normal oil painting, but at some point I decided to deconstructed. It was interesting how I started seeing things a bit differently, at first I started hacking away in frustration, but then something clicked and I started making my marks a bit more decisive. Might experiment more with this.
