Self-Portrait as_________Week Three:

About a year ago, I discovered a website called Wooster Collective and ever since then, it has inspired me on an almost daily basis with various street art from around the world. One of the forms of street art I like the most is the stencil.

A few months ago, I took this self-portrait of my wife and I in Paris, I heighten the contrast, printed it, and then cut out a stencil and spray painted it on my oil paint art box.

Due to procrastination, being busy, and life in general, I have not had time to do many more stencils, but I hope to try an get a few more done in the coming months. Who knows? Maybe if I am brave enough, I can paint one on a wall.

So for this week’s Self-Portrait Challenge here is my Self-Portrait as a Stencil



Here is the original



and the in between
