For our midterm independent painting, criteria are minimum size 36 by 24 inches, primarily painting, with some collage or drawing allowed. Not sculptural.
Due next week, Wednesday February 8, 2017 for in class critique.
I am doing six canvases, each 12 inches square.
Self-portraits, based on photos that I took of myself in the mirror, making moody faces.
