Here is one of my latest paintings. I can't join it together though on my computer but perhaps you can get the idea. It's a self-portrait done in indian ink and acrylic. The colour in the background is called 'blush'. It's about 30cm x 60cm.

This is cool, but I can't help recalling some of the communist and fascist propoganda posters of the second world war period, which is spooky (no offence intended). Maybe it's because the image is split on the screen and the full piece is cut off at the eyes. It makes hard to focus on any particular area and creates the impression of monumental scale (the colour scheme is also an important factor).

yea... this is nice amanda

I have wanted to get into using indian ink for awhile now and even went to the art supply to buy it but didnt know what pen i needed.

I put the painting together for you but the pieces didnt match up exactly. It still gives a better idea of how it looks.
But I gotta say that actually, I enjoy the piece more seperated.

I think it would be phat if the paintings were very large and seperated on the wall to make one.

Anyway heres the edited piece, pm me if u want me to remove it.

Thanks for doing that Stefan, in reality it is one piece not two but I can't put it together on my computer, don't have the software.

Rare that I echo everyone's comments, something must be in the water. It does call to mind the posters found in the regimes of dictators but some of the most moving artwork can be seen in these posters. This would be no exception.

The split works for me too.
