A Portrait in Profile I


Veils Suite: A Portrait in Profile I
monotype (oil-based inks) and watercolour pencil drawing
76 x 57 cm.

Recently I’ve been looking through a series of monotypes that I haven’t visited in a long time. I did quite a few of these in the early part of 1989, a kind of a mini-series within the very large Veils Suite series. I remember doing these very quickly, eager to bring these images forth in a way that was spontaneous and far less time consuming than etching. It’s an interesting experience for me to see these with fresh eyes now, and I thought it would be good to post them to my online portfolio over the next few weeks.
