remeber the sketches I did for about 30 days? Well, I have based a few paintings off of them. As well a the designs for some of my masks. This mask and this painting were done based off of the sketch for Day # 2 (1/21/2011).
This mask took forever to carve. The surface is done with washes and engobes, all of which I made myself. i decided to leave its surface matt, i felt that worked with the earthy feel of the piece the best.
okay..the painting wont load right now...no surprise there..I'll try again in a little bit.
