My Stubborn Sister 1

My Stubborn Sister 1
Photo Description: In response to my theme 'ORDER AND DISORDER' I decided to focus on the order of the human face, and the way in which everybody's face has the same format (2 eyes, 1 nose etc.). However, as the title of the first piece of this 3 part series suggests, my sister refused to be photographed and painted from the front. After a minor dispute it got me thinking about the structure of her bones and how they all cleverly interlink. Luckily, my sister's stubborn attitude made my final piece (I believe) turn out much stronger as I had never thought to explore these parts of the human body before. Painted using acrylic.
