I wanted to combine pastels, airbrush and acrylics into a portrait, and this is the result so far.

I wanted a graffiti look to the whole, I wanted it to have the under paint of pastel work and color, but added texture and flatness of color and form of acrylic, and through that to bring about a tension of space and subject.
