Caricature of Kanae Yamada, 2011

This is an employee of Caricature Japan that I met on one of my trips to Japan.  I remember walking into the caricature shop and she looked up and smiled at me like this.  I knew immediately that I had to do a painting of that face.  A lot of people say this drawing looks 'plastic like'  very shiny and wet.  It's one of my favorite paintings.  Could just be because I like painting teeth and big eyeballs.
