For this painting, I used a photo of a musician named Devandra Bernhart for reference. The picture itself was blue but I didn’t want to use blue again just yet so I went for a red that turned into brown.
I’m not a fan – I just liked the picture – but I gave his music a little listen (a few songs on the ‘mala’ album)and found I enjoyed the mellow feel of it. And the lyrics aren’t too bad either. Just the singing kinda sounds like he’s whispering? Not sure if that was intended but before this turns into a review let me stop here.
On to the painting; I didn’t do much different with the way I applied the paint but I have been doing lots of little sketches of masculine faces and found a few deviantart tutorials pointing out the defining little differences. I may change my mind about putting sketches up on here seeing as it is a place for me to write out my arting journey. Not sure but I will think on it some more.
