Selfie Night ~ #014 June 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for Phoneography Monday: Portraiture Choice

©14 Watching Paint 1 sml 6x


Night Studio ~ Self Portrait


clearly. for most painters. the most available. and probably the most intuitively cooperative. model. is the self. plus. there is very little. mention. of price. or release form formalities.

the selfie. has made use. of this model. quite acceptable. for those who embrace the new.

of course candid self portraits are rare. although occasionally. there is an intensity. a focus. that is on more. than just the self. the eye may be on diverse things. such as the way paint dries. or the texture of paint shrinking. even cracking. or the way different colors. mix. spatter. or run. on paper. or the transparency. opacity. layering quality. value. and depth. of each pigment. and how these qualities can alter. an event. of simple. complexity.

long ago i opted for daylight. or near daylight. lighting. in my studio. night is one of my favored times to paint.

Haiga and Haibun are two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.

  • Haiga is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work. 
  • Haibun is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.
