Night Gloom in solitude and Smoke by MushroomBrain Night Gloom in solitude and Smoke by MushroomBrain
Acrylics on Canvas 60 x 80 cm

this painting took me far to long to paint,
it started of with the woman sitting in complete darkness,
then a thing really scared my about her beacuse without me wanting to it had turned to look like my good friend Suzzi who passed away quite latly...

...so I started repaint her as a man and put a lighter more smoky background, she didnīt look good as a man so I repainted her as a woman again but keept some of the more masculin fetures in his/her face and she became a more androgynos woman but that I thought was good, still it was far to clear and bright in colors...

...today when I started working with the painting again, I fist tried to put her behind a lot of smoke, but not untill I gave it all a half see through yellow wash of acrylics I finally though it was done...

Hope you like her...

Flower Power and Peace!

D.H.

I like the concept of this framed portrait - cool colours inside a warm frame and subject giving the ups/smoking depicts a self-assured character who couldn't care less what others think. I also like the combination of hard/soft lines. Well done. Memorable.
