I decided to do a series of portraits of artists that I admire and who have had an influence on me. This is the second image of "Artist who inspire me" series.

It is had to find in stores so go directly online. Here is one link: https://www.amazon.com/Liquitex-5616-Professional-Ultra-Medium/dp/B001UNYH32
