Manson colour version

Here's the colour version - I mucked about with acrylics to try for a different feel for this subject. The background is very dilute blue paint slapped on with a big brush in a wash and then a lot of pale red slapped on and allowed to run down the board (I rotated it to paint the figure as i wanted blue at the top and red below). Then I dry brushed black over it to pick up the texture of the thick gesso I primed the board with.

For the figure I used more watered down acrylic again, a bit like water colour in some ways, with similar colours to the background.
