Cuban Hat

The hat that I wear when I go down south… it is perfect. Has a long edge over the eyes and  mostly has ventilation holes for this oooohh brain of mine. The colours that I used are mostly Yellow Ochre, Cerulean Blue, Mayan Violet and some Indigo… I have just fallen in love with Indigo…  I am putting it everywhere that I can. To create this painting I first traced it loosely with a graphite crayon, then I traced with a Pigma Micron .01 pen, and then I added in the colours.

Voici mon chapeau cubain… il sent le tabac, est hyper confortable, s’agrandit au gré des états de mon cerveau… humph! Il est parfait! En plus, il a des trous pour l’aération…! Il m’accompagne tout partout où je vais, surtout dans les pays du sud où il fait très chaud. Ici au Québec c’est plutôt rare que je m’en sers…

    Il est sur une de tes boîtes de Pepsi que tu m’as donnée il y a des lunes… (de ton père). Juste à côté de la porte d’entrée ;-)
