"May 4th"

Small Size

This painting is a smaller piece documenting the merging of my usual realistic style with an urge to delve into abstract ideas.

The smaller type paintings usually are about seeing how a new idea or technique turns out on canvas before committing to a bigger scale.

Besides the usual themes I've been keeping in mind with the FaceScapes series, this painting "May 4th" was about going with a front on facing pose, which is uncommon for me. Also I worked in more symmetry with the geometric shapes, which are used as simplified planes of facial or body features. For the main colour combination I ran with my favourite colour scheme of Blue and Green, on top of natural skin and hair tones with a little periwinkle to boot.

*Wired ready to be hung on wall.
