Art Journal – Purple Dream

I plan to do another graffiti panel but I had this page started and wanted to finish it.  I have been wanting to try doing something using  monochromatic colors.  I used three shades of purple plus white and black.  I love the deep black that can be made from dark purple and black.  This is all acrylic paints.  I first sketched the girl with pencil and then went over the page with a white acrylic paint wash.  Then I mixed various shades of purple for the rest.  The mouth and nose look off to me but….it just is.

    This is fuckin’ awesome. The facial features are off just so that it seems like things are continuously floating away. Very hypnotic. I really like it.
