See Through the Tears by marcus-JB See Through the Tears by marcus-JB
When all is said and done
When the world crumbles before me
When all hope is gone
What do I do?
Simply, see through the tears and start again.


- Acrylics on canvas
- 36 x 26 cm
- MANY hours

Kudos to the amazing photography of fashion photographer Nick Knight, who greatly inspired this.

Her face is brave and the impression I get is she doesn't want to cry, but can't help it. Is she a Geisha?

Pretty nice painting, but I suggest that you please give credit where credit is due. It appears to be based off of the famous portrait of Devon Aoki by the talented Nick Knight.
