This was my second art piece inspired by one of my favourite artists, Iris Scott, she is a finger-painting artist and her work just inspired me, so I decided to use her technique and I experimented with both acrylic and oil paints with finger painting.
Some of Iris Scott's work ( my inspiration ) :
My piece ( Beauty In The Eyes ) :
Message trying to convey -
➔No matter how many pounds of makeup woman put on their face, it wouldn’t cover their flaws. I want girls to know that flaws are part of who you are, they are a part of you, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of them, hence, don't cover it with pounds and pounds of makeup.
➔As you can probably tell, my art piece does not look as good and as pretty as the original picture does, but that was intentional. I wanted to show the flaws of what looks like a beautiful girl.
➔As i was painting this image, I created a story for the so-called character/main figure in the painting. This girl, is pretty, wise, and smart. She does great at school and at life. Her biggest flaw is her skin. I created an image in my head, with hidden bruises and pimples covering her face, that peek through the tons of makeup she has on.
➔I also intentionally did not paint the eyelashes, because in my head, this girl put on the fake eyelashes daily to hide the hurt and broken girl she is inside.
➔This piece is a statement piece, in my opinion, and it says a story that should be shared.
