So my new fascination is metal, particularly metallic masks. I like the contrast of the hard mask against the soft face, the abstract shapes and swirls within the metal, and the challenge of imitating a metallic surface using ordinary paint. I also enjoy making the masks to use as props (I've made three so far). I think this is the start of a new series. :-)
Still working on the title for this painting... It took about 3 weeks start to finish.
