|Portrait of Ade|
1m x 1.3m
Acrylic on deep edge canvas
This is a huge portrait (1m x 1.3m) and because of this is very dramatic. I wanted Ade's face to come out of the darkness of the background but mot to be menacing in anyway. It is painted in acrylics using thin washes of colour to try and maintain the translucency by using the white of the canvas underneath to shine through the washes.
