Misty’s class. Saturday 17th May. This is based on an inkjet gel medium transfer. I didn’t make a conscious choice to paint myself blue… in fact I don’t see this as a self portrait at all. It is a face, but it is not mine. Somewhere along the way, because I was working quite clearly I started to lose an eye. As I had no second copy of the original transfer image I couldn’t recall exactly where it should be, or what it looked like… so I simply eliminated the eye. It is not uncommon for me to paint one eyed people… so it felt quite natural really.
