Back To School - Self Portrait

It's been 34 years since I received my MBA and if that was not torture enough I've started back to school at Towson.  My sons couldn't believe I was going back to school to study art because as they so accurately pointed out I can not draw.  Since I consider myself an excellent craftsman this did not bother me in the slightest.  I am currently working on a self-portrait that is not a self portrait.  I am using my grandmother instead with inspiration from DiVinci and Andy Warhol.  I like the illustration image with color blocking by Warhol.  It reminds me of DiVinci's work.  My goal is to render the image of my grandmother (top) in an illustration style reminiscent of DiVinci with subdued color blocking similar to that in the Warhol print above.  A true melting pot of art!
