Myself Through the Strokes of Alberto Giacometti

While taking a figure Drawing class during my Sophomore year at CCAD, we were prompted to choose an artist and to create a self portrait in their style. I choose the sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti and this is the outcome. I choose to use acrylics on illustration board and  am really happy with how it turned out. Painting in his style forced me to get loose and confident with my brush strokes, which was something that previously I had not been comfortable with. It is unframed at the moment, I should get on that.
