Depression Paintings Digital

These paintings were loosely inspired by several songs by Car Seat Headrest. The band mention depression in the lyrics of many of their songs. I can’t put into words exactly what kind of feeling these songs give me, but I used them as a springboard to come up with my own imagery. I did the digital version of this painting first to choose colours, then recreated the colours traditionally.
