Expressionistic self-portrait

For this project we had to come up with 4/5 emotions that we were feeling, and try to convey them through an expressionistic self-portrait. I was feeling very messy at the time that I created this. I started with a base of blue and purple to convey my sadness, I then added red and orange to show that I was also feeling energized. I made my hair very messy and drew lines over my face to show how discombobulated I have felt. For the background I used a light grey ink wash so not to take away from my self portrait.
