About the work
I was inspired to use Chuck Close's type of art to do my art work. His work uses a lot of patterns to form a picture. It uses various colors to show light and shadow. It is an exquisite and beautiful form of art and it requires a lot of patience and hard work. I have used Chuck Close's wonderful art form to create my picture, The Lord Of The Waves.It is a portrait of Poeseidon, the greek god of seas. In this picture, Poseidon is angry and holding a trident. He is surrounded by a stormy sky and rough sea.
