Artists thoughts: Madagascan Ylang Ylang, Work no 3

The name of the piece is ‘Self Portrait of the artist’. This work was simply trying to portray my own image in a style maybe hinting towards how gustav klimt portrayed his work but whilst using different mediums with wax crayon and acrylic on cardboard. This piece is pretty much as big as me, so I guess it’s an accurate portrait in the terms of size haha. The pastille range of colours used reflected the day I started it on a warm afternoon in my back garden wanting to make something new, obscure, and bright! It has calmness encapsulated in the image, I stillness as I would probably sit and think about what creation I may want to make next
