Expression study

These are just a few examples of a study I did on expressions.
I have about 30 total, but these are my favorites. They're each 4in x 4in, and done with white acrylic paint and charcoal. I really like the way charcoal mixes with acrylic. It gives everything a warm, grainy look... almost like dry brushing.

The Creation of Andrea

The Creation of Andrea

So yeah... this is exactly what it looks like. I took Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" and replaced Adam with myself. It's done with watercolors on one of those huge pieces of stonehenge paper. It took about 12 hours to complete... so not too shabby. It's going to be hung above my bed as soon as I can afford to get it framed. And yes, I am aware that some would consider it mildly blasphemous. I however do not.
(Nor is it intended to be a "feminist" piece.)
