The Making of Lillian
Just for fun, I thought I’d show you a series of photos I took while making my latest small mosaic portrait. You can see the forward steps and the backward steps in the process. Sometimes I chiseled tiles off the board and substituted others. While I was making the mosaic, I was looking at some sketches I’d made, and also a photo of the person. I find that, if I make photos of my work-in-progress and study the photos, I am much more objective in my judgments than I am if I am looking at the actual work. Therefore, I make lots of photos.
