Imaginique – Day 13 (Blog)

Hey everyone!

Finished my new piece, Imaginique 
you can view the full and final piece by clicking the image below:

For my day 13 project, I wanted to do something “self portrait” related. Although this painting is obviously not identical to me, it does represent me as a person and as an artist, with a fantasy twist. I’ve had this idea for years and always had the image in my head of  “me” with dramatic long hair and using the tip of my hair as the paint brush itself.

I worked from photo reference and my imagination (especially with the hair). I really wanted the figure to be the main focus, so I kept the background simple,  but with bright vibrant colors – hot pink, neon blues etc.

This took approximately 15 hours to complete.
