Today we had art class again. With transfer technique (paste a laser print on a surface and start painting while integrating it).
I choose a few loose items: mouth, nose, eye and jaw. As I started I had no idea what to do, I started with an ochre-burnt Sienna background, but that turned out to be too saturated. So I added a white-blueish rectangle to compensate. But the original  print was hardly visible anymore.
So I added lines of black Chinese ink, drawn with a twig. That turned out to be okay. I just had to add some red and some accents. Took me two hours to make. Arcylic on board, 42x62cm. 
In the end the result reminds me of Dada paintings, like the ones Max Ernst made.
