The Yellow Turban

'The Yellow Turban' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) After almost two weeks of making images digitally, it's fun to be behind a brush again - and see how working in one media influences the way I work in anther. In this case the easy access on the iPod Touch to so much color that doesn't bleed and doesn't get muddy, is inspiring me to work in a different way with actual paint. In the year and a half of this project, I've made color images in many ways - watercolors, magic markers, cut paper, crayons, digitally, and with beet juice, to name a few. But actually the last few days are the first time I've used acrylics since the portrait project began, which is interesting since they were my primary media prior to this. In any event, I'm enjoying re-engaging with an old friend.
