Self portrait


This was a long drawn out project I finished recently. I used a photo then drew squared lines on the printed enlarged photo and on the canvas board to use as a guide. I improvised alot with magazine prints cut out to the size and colors needed. I played around with this piece alot til I was happy with the finished piece. There are alot of patterns and printed magazine pieces I haven't counted them all yet. It's one of those projects you do some of put away forever,then do more another day. What do you think?
