My first time using oils :D
This was an assignment for my Illustration Techniques and Materials class. First we made a "random"collage (I say "random" because I actually planned out my collage to a certain degree...) and then we used the collage as a reference for our painting. It was frustrating and difficult at first, but I progressively learned as I went along. If you knew the order of the faces I painted, you would see a lot of improvement... but I'm not gonna tell you! My instructor said that the people looked like they were at a party and had too much to drink (or stoned out of their minds! lulz). I painted the faces as if they were hollow shells/mask and painted the swirls to represent thoughts and memories escaping their hollow shells. Cool. Expect to see more oil paintings by me in the future!
