Fresh Face

For my second paper mosaic revitalization, I chose the decorated face that I gleaned from a line drawing by Mattisse. Once again, the face was freshened by painting a new surface on each tessera. Tedious, but the new colors were more vibrant and varied. I had used a combination of paper matt board and foils in this piece that were of different widths so grouting this time was not a good option. But the background color seems to suffice.
