I enjoy playing around with photo-editing software on my phone. I took a picture from our recent trip to the tropics and fussed around with it until I got this cool posterized look, then changed the colors so that it broke down into basic greens, blacks and purples.
Then I painted it.
Acrylic on 8x10 Masonite board
Faces are hard. Faces in profile=extra hard. I also had to do a lot of painting and re-painting to get the light source right.
