I’ve been painting for some time now but I never really bothered (or wanted) to put my works up before. I usually felt that my previous work was mostly very technique-oriented (though I hardly have to technique down pat — oh shit, I disclaimered!), and thus, subjects are usually pre-determined by what would be good to learn in the application of a certain technique. This would usually mean landscapes, also drawn by fellow classmates.
And while I still make work based on paintings or photos, this is probably the first painting I finished that made me feel I created something I liked, and it’s what got me more interested in portrait painting. This was painted late last year and inspired me to try out different ways of painting a portrait, and really looking for subjects that inspired me. 🙂
So yeah, I guess this painting started it all, and this is a long overdue post, but I promised myself I’d be posting more artwork here.
