Self-Portraits (Over-sized)

I chose to do a series of three paintings for my self-portrait. Each was about 24" by 30" acrylic on Masonite. My concept was to explore pure colour. I wanted to use colour as the main expression of each piece. I had a lot of fun putting colour where I knew it didn't belong. I also wanted to create layers by working back into each painting with sand paper and overlapping images. These are the results.
