The hardest part of posting is resisting the urge to start of with “Here is….” every time I begin to write. Now that the first sentence is out of the way, here it goes.
This is a portrait series project I completed back in 2006. It was part of my Freshman year Color Concepts class. The project requirements were to create 4 self portraits, beginning with a charcoal manikin study, a painterly portrait using a full palette, a stylized high chroma portrait, and finally a portrait based on the style and palette of an established artist (Henri Matisse).
Who loves scratch art? I do.
This is the one and only Salvador Dali. I did this during my senior year of high school. It was the first work of mine that made it in a gallery. Hell yeah high school.
