My Modigliani Portrait of Van Gogh

I wanted to paint a portrait of Vincent Van Gogh as if Modigliani had painted it - with an elongated mask like face. I used both of their portraits as references, and wanted to honor them both. I feel I know Vincent better now! The painting is 18 x 24 and I realized the head and shoulders are "life size."
