'Watcher' by MLS-art 'Watcher' by MLS-art
Acrylic on Canvas,

70 50 cm,

2011.

I thought with this painting Id start with a straightforward headshot and see how far I could go with it, The head I think is from a statue whos image I found on a shisha tin box at home, I thought it was a good starting point as it was heavily contrasted, thus giving me an easy start with the tonal work. This was originally gold/green when I started. The more I worked at it, the more I suppose I just lost myself in it it actually looks nothing like what it started off as. The eyes were originally left white from the background, I decided to make them look somewhat artificial as opposed to just convenient holes in the subject.
