Last year I was asked by Scott the director of the Issachar Center to do a 3′ x 4′ painting for their Soul Music Series. We decided that it would be on particle board (something more durable than canvas). He came up with a concept that I eventually put it into Photoshop.
Next, I primed the board black and then drew a 3 inch grid system to insure that I painted it at a proper scale. I then using acrylic paint build the facial features touching it up layer by layer.
I’m so glad Scott gave me the opportunity to do this. Thanks Scott and Issachar!
