This was a painting my cousin asked me to paint for her, as she wanted something to go up on her wall and like my previous paintings. The painting itself was one I wanted to experiment with, I chose to do it using a threshold technique in Photoshop, which i made in to 3 layers. I then projected the 3 separate layers/images on to 3 separate piece of Tyvek. I then traced the rough outline of the images and cut the shape out of the Tyvek to create a mask for which i would stencil with on to canvas. The final step was to use a sponge and acrylic paint to add a interesting patchy texture of layered shapes that make up stylised but realistic picture of Richard. Unfortunately my cousin did not like the style so I have it up on my wall now. hehe
