Warm-Cool Eve
(©1994 John Akin, Jr.)

(Oil on Arches paper.) I think I mentioned about that one model who did the same pose all the time (see "Green Eve"...) For this one I was trying to do a sort of mono-chromatic thing in blue, but I ended up going over most of it in red... My professor for the class used to say I had an over-reliance on the color red, and we'd occasionally bicker about whether I was using color "spatially" or "symbolically" (e.g., using color to create space and light vs. simply assigning colors to objects). I think the answer is "Yes"...
