Portrait by Steve Eichenberger, acrylic on acid free paper, 14 x 17. SOLD
Another piece in my continuing effort to practice keeping things loose. I even crumpled up the paper before beginning, to make it less “precious” (which came back to haunt me after I finished the piece and decided to adhere it to a foamcore backing, but it turned out okay).
The background is pretty wild; I got a new set of palette knives and used one of them to pile on the paint.
The hair is just roughed in, but I decided it works with the background so resisted refining it.
