62 minutes later, I ended up with this. I wanted to fuse the strong lines of his later works with the glass-like appearance of earlier ones, in the muted tones of the work towards his death. It's more complicated than most of his work, but I think that it includes important aspects of many phases of his life expressed through his paintings. So that's it: Personifying Contemplating. (Sorry if it's very dark -- it's brighter on my iPad).
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
