Happy/Sad Mask

I love this painting! It was around the ime when I was experimenting with different materials and I found one that I really enjoyed using! (Watercolors!) The purpose for this painting was due to a negative mood I was in. One side is a happy, care-free girl, but the otherside is a more melancholy and sad girl. I put tape on the sad girl's mouth to show how she can't verbally say what she truly feels. I also used different colors with different intensities to show the emotions better... Bright colors for the happier side and dull colors for the sad side.

My Self Portrait

This is a self Portrait of me that I did way back in my senior year of high school. At first, it didn't look like this but as I became a better artist, I shaded certain areas of my face instead of smuging. I also added pupils to my eyes. (I looked souless the first time I did this!)
