Watercolor self portrait

It was self portrait day in watercolor class. We did a project in which we took a photograph of ourselves and gridded it off, then drew an identical grid on our watercolor paper. We had two index cards with 1" squares cut out of the center. As we painted, we put one card over one square on our photograph, and another card over the same square on our painting, and painted exactly what we saw in that square. Thus, my face is broken into 1" squares. It did come out amazingly accurate, though.
