Design in black and white now featuring grey

This week in design class we were working on a painting.  Here it is:

painting, scanned, saved as a jpeg

It’s a portrait! go ahead, you knew that so roll your eyes, I’ll wait.

So, yes, a portrait on a grid.  Five values here; black, white, and three grey in between.  It was a bit of a paint by numbers project.  The original image was a photo that was in black and white.  The painting is 8×10, seen here placed on a grid that was made up of 1×1 squares.  One 4×4 section on the painting was allowed to have two lines, the rest just one.  The result is what you see.
