I have always loved portraiture, with particularly strong leanings towards Fauvist use of color. I forget how much I enjoy the process, & in an attempt to be less serious I present you with these faces. Which if you ask me still look pretty serious despite their vibrant colors. My senior thesis in high school was a show composed entirely of vibrant faces with bright red apples hanging on turquoise thread in front of them. The string & apples provided enough of a veil so that you would have to stand in a specific spot to see the portrait & thus the person. A lot like life, right? The apple temptation proved too much & another student tangled all of the threads by throwing the apples, not a wonderful moment. But at least it fit metaphorically. That AP Art portfolio was not graded highly & since then I have shied away from the faces. However the process is less laboured, much more free & that counts for something. I think the faces will be around for awhile now. Hope you enjoy color!
