This was loosely based on a self-portrait I took weeks ago. I had wrapped up for the winter weather and loved the way my eyes looked peering through all the layers. As my mother pointed out, it has references topics which make people uneasy but I think/hope people can look past that. I tried to dive into the patterning and line work. There is something I really enjoy about the version which contains watercolor. It feels so different from anything I have done before. Enjoy and see you next time.
Cropped version of clean print
full version with watercolor
The graphic artist in me likes the clean version better, with its sharp lines and high contrast, but I see what you’re saying about the colored version. As for the touching on a touchy topic I think it is the job of artists to reflect the times in which they live.
There is something nice about the cleanness of the original print, I agree. I love that print allows you to make multiple versions of the same base image.
