Pink Punk

photo 3I’m crazy about color schemes and getting so much inspiration on combining certain colors: lime green and pink. Yum. Here’s the basic process, ala Mindy Lacefield, for crafting a raw background of little personal marks, and then finding the face and body of a character:

A recent, very accomplished artist suggested that a “raw” background and a “raw” figure might might make a more integrated composition. I think I agree and will see what thats like. I wonder if you like the earlier unfinished face, aka “raw” quality on this background? I went ahead and finished it, but am wondering now.

  1. Of course I love this! I love the colors…I tend to use them quite often too. I’m still working on finding my voice with raw painting. It really speaks to me and speaks to where I’ve been going as an artist.

    I like the intensity of the finished face, but I like the dreamy quality of the unfinished. It’s so hard to choose which to do!

  2. I love the progression of your images. 🙂 I think I love the child-like innocence of your work. ❤ When I see Reality Sandwiches in my e-mail I get excited and can't wait to see what you've done for us. 🙂 Thank you.
