I choose this painting done by Chuck Close because this is the type of painting we are going to have to paint so i wanted to get a good look at the inspiration for it. I found it interesting that he drew a self portrait because I believe that is very hard to do but I like that he included glasses in his photo. The way he made the imagine as if looking through a kaleidoscope. I think its so crazy how someone was able to paint this let alone themselves. The colors he choose seem really accurate, even the wrinkles in his face and his facial hair.
