Portrait of a Sailor

That thumbnail of the skipper below, sparked something, so I turned it into a painting.

Acrylic and mixed media on canvas board, 594x420mm

This is mostly acrylics, but I played with some collage, stamping, stencilling and tar gel to get a layered feel. And of course I added real jewellery, just because I really like the effect and it's a challenge to make it fall right so that it fits into the 2D surface.
