Jamaican Roots
Description: This young woman caught my heart. I used the same image as that of "Looking In", but for this one I selected just her face. There was something about her eyes that were enchanting, yet questioning. For the mask effect I used a part of a palm plant -the roots of the plant. I converted to BW and then tinted it; I mirrored it horizontally and centered the seam to line up with her nose.
For the outside or mat portion of the image I used the same plant and made a pattern, then filled it with the pattern. I gave it a twirl for effect... though I can't remember exactly what I did.
