Today’s watercolor experiment:
Yesterday’s mask was a little ambiguous to my eyes. I wanted to create a face that was an amalgam of my brother Mike and me. Mike, my brother, is autistic, very low functioning and has never spoken. That mask didn’t quite fuse my features with my brother’s.
I met with more success today.
The portrait above is a melding of two disparate faces, even though they are split. The harmonious colors have something to do with it. Yesterday’s portrait was more dis-integrated, with a spotlight emanating from my ‘eye’ to shine on Mike. My intention was to search for my brother, but I can also see how the light could be interpreted as glaring at him.
