My roommate was pressuring me to paint something (almost no background) and added a challenge: use as little colours that you can recognise as possible. He torments me because I'm colour blind, probably as a revenge for me whooping his arse in chess a bit too often for his liking. :P
On this painting, I can clearly see only black, blue and bits of yellow. It does not represent anything, it's just some geometry and "stay within lines" exercise. However, I was urged to share it so here it is:
For me, there is almost no contrast and if not for the lines I would not even see where I have attempted a colour change with exception of blue in the middle and yellow on the right-hand side. Certain discoloration around some of the black dots isn't a conscious doing but a result of chemistry. I have used grounded coffee soaked in concentrated acetic acid and dried with acetone vapour (don't attempt it if you don't have an access to a proper lab with fume hood, mask and goggles! That shit can cause eye and lung damage with little contact. Or at least do it outside with a proper eye, breathing and skin protection if you are so hell-bent on trying it out. You have been warned) to get a pigment shift in acrylic paint. Some of it fell off during drying.
What do you think? Should I try it again or was all of that just a waste of paint? I'm not fishing for compliments or ego-boost, be harsh and realistic. And sorry for a blueish tinge to it, that's either because of LED light or my camera is really that shitty.
