I love Lynne Hoppe's work and it has inspired this portrait. I used my non dominant hand to draw the face. The background was from a paper towel that was used as a clean up rag, then I ripped it into squares and glued it down with matte medium, painted it with gesso and then sanded it. I drew the face with an ochre pen then watercoloured it. I also added pencil crayons and water soluble oil pastels. I love the textures.
On the right side the background is watercolours and water soluble oil pastels. The heart is stamped with a love poem by Kahlil Gibran and stitched around and cut out and layered on top. The words are added with rubber stamps.
