"Above" The vast majority of my paintings come from photographs that I've found in books, magazines, or online. I had rescued a stack of magazines from my mum's recycling bin to tear out pictures of pretty ladies. All the pages I wanted to keep were in a stack which, due to my stupor-powers, fell all over the floor. One page was lying on top of another, cutting off the top of a head. I thought the composition was pretty cool that way, so painted it! This one is done entirely with two paints: brown and pthalo blue. All the shading is done through layering the colors using both wet and dry-brush techniques. Fun experiment and I'm diggin' the results!
