Portrait using flat brush

This painting was inspired by Tan Shan Shierenberg in terms of brush stroke and colour.  I used a large, flat brush to create striking brush strokes in only horizontal or vertical directions.  This was quite difficult to do on the finer features of the face such as the teeth and eyes, so i used a much finer brush in these areas.
