Portrait with a Green Stripe

'Portrait with a Green Stripe' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) This is after Henri Matisse's 'Portrait with a Green Stripe' but in the reproduction I was using, the two sides of the face were much more similar in color, both yellow ochre. I thought this would be a simple exercise - bold lines, flatish colors - but this was that quite common case where an image that looks simple, simply isn't.
