one of these I have posted before, but I figured I would repost it with its fellow crazy heads. these i'm mostly doing for my own enjoyment - i start them all the same. I've been taking extra paint I have left over and simply putting it onto one canvas haphazardly. Eventually, after there is enough random paint on a page - i'll find a face in it and paint it on. there is something very therapeutic about making these.

here's one more acrylic portrait and a cover for a mix CD I made for Allan Comport - which is mixed media (acrylic, ink, and pencil). these were both quick but really enjoyable to make. i can feel i am making slow but steady progress with figuring out how I want to use acrylic paints.

so, whenever i've recently had extra paint on my palette that i was going to throw out - i decided to use it up in my sketchbook, painting some abstract shapes that could be used for portraits. then after it dried, i drew over it with black pen - and this is what resulted! i really enjoyed this process.
