To start out this project, I received a swatch cutout from a painting in a masterpiece magazine and was assigned to create artworks that best represented the swatch I had received. As soon as I saw my swatch my immediate thought was: sponges. The idea was to make a painting using sponges as the main painting technique. I did not have many ideas for the subject matter of this painting, but eventually I was inspired by my friend’s afro hair style and had a revelation that I could add all the colors from the swatch into his hair and make that the focal point of the piece.
Check out "Color Wreck" - another artwork inspired by the masterpiece color swatch.
