Gotta Love That Afro




This was a demo that I did for my Illustration class that I teach a Utah Valley State College. This was an in-class assignment. The students were to paint a stylized portrait in high viscosity acrylic paint, incorparting tactile texture and use a monochromatic color scheme. I really tried to push texture and exploit the acrylic paint as well as make the most out of the monochromatic color scheme. I did allow students to start with a warm or cool wash before painting with a monochromatic color scheme. The wash is burnt sienna and I painted the rest with raw sienna and black and white.

Thanks for commenting. It's nice to read what people, other than myself, think about paintings.

Cool, very nice work Jamin. I think your head paintings have great color work on them. I am envious. This one is super all the way around.
