They call me Mr. Tibbs!!!

Second finishes of the new school year! I'm not sure how I feel about them. I tried a new technique using duralar and painting on both sides as well as on paper behind it. I like the layered look but I think my colors are kind of drab. I don't know why I have so much trouble choosing colors from my head - or even with reference. I guess I just over think things.

These were another playing card assignment. This time my theme was movies I watched this summer. I watched 100 movies in 113 days! Unfortunately it was my greatest summer achievement. But anyway...
The first is Sidney Poitier in In the Heat of the Night as the Ace of Spades; the second is the cast of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie as the 8 of diamonds; and the last is Hurd Hatfield in The Picture of Dorian Gray as the Ace of Hearts.
I'm pretty happy with the likenesses overall and I really like certain aspects each one but they aren't exactly the "crème de la crème." Oh well. Onward to the next adventure!
