Portrait of my Father
While in Cyprus, I asked my father to take some photographs of me. I was trying to explain and show him what kind of photographs I wanted to him to take so I used him as an example to show him how zoomed in I wanted the photographs to be. I ended up really liking the photograph and decided to turn it into a painting. It took me around 8 hours to complete.
