Head

4 1/2 x 6 Original Pastel with Acrylic Underpainting on Watercolor Paper

Michelangelo used to say that when he sculpted, he was “freeing” the person inside.  I am no Michelangelo, but sometimes my abstracts take on a mind of their own and actually paint themselves.  I was in the zone when painting this and to my surprise, a man’s head emerged over time.  I like the texture of this one, as the underpainting on the watercolor painting shows itself.
