UNF Color Theory: Psychological Self-Portrait

In this assignment, we were to choose two contrasting words to use as the basis for a psychological self-portrait. The words I chose were 'passive' and 'aggressive'. We had to draw two abstract images representing each word respectively, and base the colors used in each on the meaning or connotation we felt represented each word. We then had to paint  two self-portraits using the same colors used in the abstract images.

This is the result of my word choice:

Each painting is 5x7 inches, painted in acryla gouache on Bristol board mounted on illustration board. The two on the left represent 'passive' and the two on the right 'aggressive'.

Cool! I feel the difference in the word choice when looking at them. Great job.
