Jesus Christ - my first paper portrait

This is my very first Paper Portrait.

A portrait of Jesus I made for my very dear friend Helen. She tells me the eyes show different emotions at times - I could see sadness.

This is a close-up showing the 8 layers on the face. Altogether there is 11 different coloured papers and it took 5 days to design, cut and finish. The beard was tricky, but I am very pleased with my first effort. I was lucky enough to find an old rubbley-wall paper for the background - just perfect. The canvas size is 30cm x 40cm.

  1. Background is perfect and I love the earthy shades with the red robe.Beard has come out so well.
