Self-Portrait (2013)

First, notice the warm brown background, with hints of red and gold specks inspired by the amazing Gustav Klimt. Then recognize the flowing lines that outline my face, my hand, my shoulders, and background. Using contour lines, I created this whole piece without ever once lifting the pen off the paper. Lastly, study the way my hair falls in my face, the triangular cut-outs that shade my cheeks, and the bright red of my glasses and lips. The rest is left to your own interpretation.
