Gridded Self-Portrait

This was a project that I put at least 20 hours into and I still could put in another 20 hours to finish! We had to match skin tone square by square by square--a study in color. Each square is one inch.

If you squint, you'll see it looks like a photograph of me!

While I learned a LOT about color mixing, and how there is not one part of a "white" person that is actually white (even teeth and the whites of eyes), I will not be finishing this project. It is agonizingly tedious.  I think I've learned all I can.  

One lesson: my hair color has more brown in it then red! 

I'll admit, it does make for a cool end-result. If you can make it to the end!
