Art: Despondent by Artist Kris Jean

One sees their own flaws with glaring certainty, without taking a step back to see their own beauty. It's buried, hidden from view, under years of negativity - waiting for the day the truth is realized and it blooms. One only has to look, but that's the hardest part.

Painted with professional grade acrylics. My process starts with a canvas painted black and I slowly layer in each shade of grey from darkest to lightest - bringing the subject into focus shrouded in shadows. You can see the entire process on my blog.

Painted from a photo by Robin Cruz used with permission.
