Just A Reminisce
These paintings are about 2 years old now, but I had a inclination to study them again today. I feel like they are so fresh, even though some of the colors are too bold or striking for my technical taste now. They are three portraits of friends from freshmen year (completed freshman year.) They are mixed media on masonite. The backgrounds are dyed newspaper, the dresses are acrylic, the ribbon is . . . ribbon, and the hair and skin are oil. Very fun to mix and match the media to find exciting results.
