Joshua's First Hair Cut, 12" x 20", Mixed Media on Panel, 2009

acrylic biro coloured pencil josh me mixed media panel portraits self portrait

Some events in life are common but worth remembering. One of them happens to be the first time I cut Josh's hair. He was a bit bewildered and didn't have a clue what was going on. The job had to be done and I can't say I gave him a good hair cut but that was the first time and it is worth remembering. I have improved on my barbing skills since then.

On this piece I have used mainly thin Acrylic washes, Biro and coloured pencil to temper some areas. I have also given it a kind of contemporary feel with a lot positive and negative spaces to enhance the composition and main figures.
