Martin M. Rocha Art Classic Rewind:Behind Blue Eyes

My inspiration came during the famous Chicago Blizzard of February 2nd.  I remember enjoying the moments as the blizzard came down upon us. The more the snow fell the more incentive I had to keep creating.

Motivation came from the beauty of the black and white photography I was admiring while homebound. While the light and shadows had amazing depth, I felt I wanted to add something more. I thought how simply amazing what a touch of color could bring to the images.

Almost immediately, I was drawn to an image of my nephew. I decided to try the technique of adding color to black and white by highlighting his gorgeous eyes. I was extremely pleased with the results.

The aptly titled “Behind Blue Eyes” brings the viewer’s attention to one of the most stunning aspects of my nephew. The blue in stark contrast to the black and white was just the touch the seemed to complete the drawing.
