After doing the self-portrait with pastels, i felt more open to experimenting with them. The previous drawing was based on a photograph i had taken of myself for the emotionless portrait task set by Chris, but in this one i didnt use anything to look at. One thing that i knew i wanted, was to experiment more with the colours used. I decided to use mostly reds and its analogous colours.


This image doesn’t convey the colours in the face very well, but i was hoping to give the impression of a strong emotion. I wanted her to look like she was emotional but without giving her a facial expression, so i just wanted to represent it with colour.
