Gray Snyder | “Eclipse”

This media file is attached to: Painting / Watercolor

In this painting, I strived to paint inspired by the assigned theme: "Contradictions". As a queer person, there are many times in my life where I have felt like a living contradiction to the world around me. In this piece, I prioritized the use of complimentary colors to also portray how two opposing people can come together. I wanted to paint the idea of how people can simply love, without the weight of other people's judgement and expectations.
