Self Portrait #6 (after Matisse)
One of the aspects of the art of Matisse that I admire is the fact that he didn’t just do a variation on the same thing over and over. This portrait seemed to lend itself to a collage interpretation. I first tried to paint the lines in with ink, but the ink wouldn’t adhere to most of the magazine photos I used for the collage. So there’s a bit of an ink smear on the face. But a marker worked just fine.
