A portrait of M.

This portrait of “M.” is the first portrait linoleum print I did. We had a photo shooting a few weeks before the print. One of the resulting pictures was the following (it’s already mirrored!):

Mphoto_mirrorThe idea was to get a high contrast image, it would make the linoleum cut easier. The photo happens to end up like this (in the original direction):

M_01I’m still not perfectly happy with the mouth and I removed the black strokes at the throat as the work advanced. So finally I added another color to fill the face, it’s burned ochre (or something like that).
