The top series is of a woman, which demonstrates illness, self image, self worth and all those lovely things in the disfigured body she possess. It originally started as a very yellow colour and then I did it over, changing the brushstrokes realising that otherwise she'd look like she had scales. It's nowhere near finished, many elements of the face (ie: nose, chin, lips, forehead, the whole other side of the face) need to be completed, in addition to the rest of her abdomen and flailing limbs. I feel it's turning out well and I am having a great time making it :)
I'm undecided as to whether I should alter the background or not. I like that the gray tones add a feeling of isolation and entrapment.
The next two, below, show a portrait I'm working on. Feeling inspired by Tamara de Lempicka's soft cubism, I thought I'd try and adapt it in my style. We'll see how this turns out.
