acrylic on hardboard
I had a teacher in high school that preached the importance of pattern. I think she would have loved this painting. I was excited about painting the sequence until half way through the painting. I kept thinking why did I do this to myself. I wasn't even sure if I was going to pull it off until the very end, there are a lot of dots in that mask. In the end I love everything about this painting and I'm very pleased with the perspective of the portrait.
