Did this the other day using poster paint base and acrylic purple . And a gold coloured. The rest is poster paint .. the acrylic has stayed on top of the black based giving a pleasingly embossed feel I then tried using gold sharpie pen on the black bits . It's turned out like flower head I am not to bothered with the big cracks as it's added texture..#ACRYLICPOUR#abstractart#acrylicswipe#posterpaint#negativespace
Dried piece I did earlier... poster paint and a little water in love the cracks where the paint has separated.. very mat finish but the colours in real life are very bright I am presently surprised at the results from my experiment for cheap ingredients #abstractart#acrylicswipe#posterpaint#negativespace
If you hear a voice within you saying, “You are not a painter,” then by all means paint, boy, and that voice will be silenced, but only by working.
Whatever may be said of the art world, it is not rotten. On the contrary, it has improved and improved, and perhaps the summit has already been reached; but at all events we are still quite near it, and as long as you and I live, though we might reach the age of a hundred, there will be a certain real vitality. So he who wants to paint - must put his shoulder to the wheel.
Live - do something - that is more amusing, that is more positive. In short - one must of course give Society its due, but at the same time feel absolutely free, believing not in one's own judgment, but in “reason” (my judgment is human, reason is divine, but there is a link between the one and the other), and that my own conscience is the compass which shows me the way, although I know that it does not work quite accurately.
What shall I do now? The common phrase is, “What is your aim, what are your aspirations?” Oh, I shall do as I think best - how? I can't say that beforehand - you who ask me that pretentious question, do you know what your aim is, what your intentions are?

This is a quick sketch and an unfinished painting last December 22. I've given up because I got bored and I messed up but since I saw this again, I decided to finally finish it. .
The theme was supposed to be red, white and black based on Crystal Snow single album, but I already added the esmeraldo so I went with blue and purple theme~ .
It's been a while since I last tried drawing with a bit of realistic style. I'm still not that good in proportions and while adding the details, I realized that at first glance, I can see Jin, but there's an angle that's telling me it looks like Jiminie 😅 I guess that depends on how you see it. . . (For me, it's still Jin 😂)
Anyway, I hope you like this painting hehe. Have a good day everyone~
❞ I am depressed.
I can still smile at pretty things.
And laugh when jokes are funny.
I can still talk to people.
And enjoy nice days.
But when i go inside,
When i’m alone,
There is something broken.
Something that makes me lifeless
I am depressed.
I’ve been sad for a while.
But i can still find the light.
I can still smile : ) ❞ .
