The follicle painting (as so named by my father)





This was one of those paintings that took forever for me to be happy with. Originally it was started as an experimental canvas but over time became something to conquer. There is loads of layering in this piece and ALOT of pencil work that doesn't translate well in the photograph. I was well pleased with myself after it was completed. Just a few weeks ago,  I proudly showed my parents the end result only to have my father point out that it looked like a hair follicle under a layer of epidermas LOL (gawd I love that man). So from then on it has been known as "The Follicle Painting". And I likes it alot :)
