This piece is part of my graduating exhibition and was featured as part of the 2015 senior class exhibition.
This piece explores emotion through the thin glazes of color delicately layered around the eyes.

I work with both oil and watercolor and use very similar applications with both mediums. The codependency of color placement and its intensity play a vital role in presenting the current thoughts and emotions of the figures. I choose to place vibrant strokes of color around the eyes of the figures to exaggerate the emotion behind the eyes. With these portraiture's I strive to present a still display of emotion. Instead of simply displaying a realistic copy of the figure, I choose to exaggerate and add color that is not there to subtly enhance the display of emotion.
