Now I can’t lie as a christian it’s amazing what theories I choose to influence what I think of people, the illuminati had to be my all time favorite, I never was scared of the concept, I just liked to ask questions, and when I question people they often take it as me being nosy, I guess my afro mindset of ‘if you don’t know, ask’ is wrong. But I do know that I can make assumptions, some are obvious but others are not even worth mentioning, but I fall victim to the Freudian slip (in my case Freudian sentences) but I’m learning. Now of course there’s one person I used to analyse not based on her fame but more on her character, and lets face it she’s HAWT and incredibly hard working but why does she grab people’s attention? Yes SHE’S HAWT O_O” but why do we think that? My answer came when I talked to my good friend and diva Emma when she pointed out just how symmetrical Rihanna’s face is and I was like JESUS DID YOU HEAR THAT :O GREAT TRUTH!!!!!! I never realised just how obsessed we were with symmetry but it’s SO TRUE, now of course with the wonders of modern technology she looks GREAT! and we see this and think then why doesn’t Jay Z see this? Possible affair? answer…..NO! because there’s one woman who keeps them hoes in check, there’s a reason why she sang ring the alarm, and Jay knows that if ever he even thinks of doing something stupid Sasha will illuminate him before he has the chance to apologise. Just comes to show you that if you can’t gain someone’s love by kindness you can equally achieve it by FEAR >:`) but I’ll be good for now, just a warning to those that think I can’t spazz out 😀
So I’m testing out watercolor techniques this along with the tigers will be an ongoing series, I’m banning myself from tracing (I love youtube artists that think we don’t know they traced the outline before adding the detail but don’t be mad it’s not a new concept google camera obscura) and focusing on my artistic expressionist side. So plenty drama on da canvas 😛 But as usual I start small to work out what needs to be done on a large scale.
So with a lot of encouragement I’ve decided to be true to myself and start from scratch. Well not exactly, I’ve always been a secret watercolour lover 😀 I also love working with different media so with some inspiration from my favorite singer/songwriter Ester Dean and artist Kate Knight, I decided to finally finish a design for a good friend Lteisha. She’s a makeup artist; and of course we artists have to help each other out so I broke my I WILL STICK TO READY MADES! mantra and allowed the geist to take control. Something in me is just yearning for the 90s So it was obvious that I’d have that vibe, partnered with Ester Dean’s flow the outcome was destined to be retro 90s. So as I’m sure you are all aware I’m obsessed with a particular colour pallet.
So I thought I’ll wing it and see what I can create. OH WORD OF ADVICE do not be fooled by your eyes when buying artist quality paints you mistake to be the primary colours red, blue & yellow. I’m sure you’ve done what I did in the past and mixed all types of combinations and still didn’t get the colours you desired, well HAVE NO FEAR! I’ll let you in on a secret most artists keep to themselves (probably thinking it’s something new 😛 ) The holy painting trinity is: Process Cyan, Process Magenta, and Processed Yellow 😀 with these three colours you can make all types (Hues) of colour, which is why your standard printer uses cyan magenta and yellow then standard primary red, blue & yellow. You can then mess around with your desired gradient tone by adding black or white to your colour mixture. So yeah started painting again in water colours, this is one outcome, I hope to perfect this technique and produce more mixed media mash ups.
