I have called this series 'competition'
This is because I believe that women are all competing with each other for individuality and identity.
I started this series by first of all using my make-up skills to exaggerate different elements of my face and take my make-up to the extreme and taking photographs of myself to work from.
I am greatly inspired by expressive painters such as Philip Gurrey (www.philipgurrey.com) and Maggie Hambling.
The paintings are unfinished, but I thought you'd like to see my current progression.
I will first show you one of the photographs that I was working from.
p.s. my boobs are natural- don't ask! ><
