Sydney was based off a photograph I took of Sydney Silva. Sydney is a fellow artist whom I’ve shown with and her personality is so lively and energetic that I knew she would be great for a painting. Sydney’s artwork often uses many pattern type designs and I wanted to incorporate that into the work by making it a part of her bracelet and earrings. Sidney is also singer in her reggae band Inna Di Red with her fiancé Blayne and for this reason, it was important for me to include the guitar into the artwork to express Sydney’s personality. The day of the photo-shoot was beautiful giving the image bright vibrant colors and I wanted to capture this in the work by using very saturated colors. The background was left very abstracted along with the outer edges of the canvas to assure that the viewer would know that this is a painting and not a photograph painted onto canvas.
