Chuck Close inspired portrait

To create this A3 sized painting, I pixelated the photo i had taken using photoshop and then used this image as a backdrop, allowing me to paint the squares in the correct place.  On top of these initial squares, i painted shapes similar to those used by Chuck Close to form the features of the face.
