This piece was inspired by the week 4 artist in my 21 Secrets Live class. It consists of many layers of paint and stencils followed by graffiti style writing on deli paper collaged over the top, followed by pan pastels with letter stencils. I used a lot of primary colors for this one, which I rarely do, but I’m trying to experiment with all different styles, colors, and media.
The real challenge on this one was using a big, bold black marker to draw the face freehand, with no planning or penciling in first. I purposely kept it very primitive so I could do it more freely since there was no way to erase or tweak the details!
