Bad News

"Bad News"
Watercolor on Recycled Painting

     This is number 27 of my 30 in 30 challenge.  This challenge has been so much fun, and has created a freedom in me, that I didn't know existed.  My intention was to make every single daily painting experimental.  I've never tried to do any drippy and wild colored portraits before, so thought I would give that a whirl.  I chose this photo reference of myself, taken just after receiving some bad news. Everyone always tells me that I wear my feelings on my face.  I guess I do.   I wasn't sure how to begin with the drippy style, so I settled with brights and nontraditional colors. These hydrus liquids did the trick for that.   I tried to do this really quick, without overworking anything.  If you look carefully, you can see the underlying shapes and shades, which add so much interest.  Although I recognize that I need a complete make-over, I am fairly pleased with the way this turned out, considering my goals.
