This was painted centuries ago, while I was at college. My first ever acrylic painting, and my first photorealist painting.

I only had five tubes of colour at the time - black, white, red, blue and yellow. When I framed & mounted the painting, I put a small square of each colour on the mount to remind me that you don't necessarily need a suitcase full of paints. It was based on a frame from the film "Alien", featuring Sigourney Weaver.
