Title: "Inner Critic, Stand Down!"
Size: 8x8 inches
Loving linear work more and more. This is somewhat like the children's illustration work I used to do back in another lifetime. Back then it was ink and watercolors. Nowadays I'm totally entranced by acrylics, and will stick with that medium. It's fun to combine all the skills I know into one style.
This palette is different for me. I never used much black before, and with the texture, careful attention must be paid to values lest the whole thing get too muddy.
The title of this piece is based on all the little psychodramas that have played in my head during times of extreme stress, when I wasn't sure if I made the right decision, when I felt I had dropped the ball, etc etc etc and my Inner Critic would bully my Inner Child. Well OK that's how I interpreted it. Anyways it makes for some interesting art.
