ugly canvas-y paper


an acquaitance of my mother's asked me to do this caricature as a birthday present- seemed like a nice opportunity to do it in a medium i don't know anything about (acrylics). didn't have much to go from, painted it from a picture on my cell phone (that was a pain- the damn thing kept shutting off). still flying by the seat of my pants, but i'm getting a grasp on few things. it would be better if i worked methodically, but this was more fun. kind of "trial and error" way.
