|A few months ago I painted an abstract portrait of my 17 year old son, I'm not an artist, but enjoy playing around with acrylic paint, or pastels, or simply with a piece of charcoal or a pencil.
As Cubism in portraits is based around seeing the face from different perspectives at the same time, I thought I'd take a profile shot of my son, as well as the painting and see whether I could marry the two images together. I was pleased with the result, but it was lacking something. I then overlayed an image with triangular shapes, which could be viewed as cubist, as a texture to achieve a more realistic cubism effect.
I am very new to Extended Editing, so this is technically quite simple, but I'm happy with the final result and hope that you like it!
Any and all comments are welcome.
