Lemon Twist Abstract Face Painting

This is a painting that I created that was shown in an NFT gallery crawl in New York. The original and NFT was sold, but prints are available.

I start with blue and yellow acrylic ink and lay down the basic shape using the dropper top. Then I spray it with water, I love the little spray marks this makes. Then I draw with charcoal and apply matt medium with a sponge roller. This creates a grungy texture. For the highlights I use white acrylic paint which I apply with a sponge brush, which forces me to be bold and loose. Then the detail is added with Neocolor wax pastels.
