Painting: Acrylic, Gesso, Pencil, Marker and Color on Canvas.
This modern, conceptual and partly abstract portrait painting is made with actylic, pencils and acrylic markers on canvas. The work is inspired by modern portrait painters such as Lionel Smit. After setting the underpaiting I got even more inspired by the images I remember from the movie 'The Last Emperor'. This is why I decided to leave a part of the portrait half-painted as it was: The Emperor is still there and ready to fight, but his power is slowly fading away.
