DAILY DIAPER #192 "I've got an idea!"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.


One of the last in this small series of self portraits, this actually was the first one that I came up with to paint. Breaking the brush tradition I decided to go with one of my trusty old pastel pencils. How I come up with my idea I really dont know but this is probably the Giner Pile look that occurs when the occasion occurs that I do get one.


On the painting of this piece I wanted to, out of respect for the pastel pencil, use alot more broken color than I normally would. Putting fresh color on a brush and scumbling over and over until you get the effect you want is something that I really figured out how to do when I started painting in pastels 8-9 years ago.
