Self Portrait by Willem De Kooning

I liked this piece of art by Willem De Kooning because of the choices of color he chose. They are very light colors that work together to make a bold statement that is pleasing to the eye. I also enjoyed this piece because of his use of shading with black to offset the colors and to make the shape of his own face. When you look at other paintings of his the colors don't flow into a shape quite as easily, whereas this one you automatically know you are looking at someone's face.
