Portrait of Dee (Clayboard)

Here's a change of pace: I did this Clayboard portrait (by scratching into the black with sharp metal, for those of you not familiar with the medium) last year, during one of the last few art-school classes. Sorry the photo is slightly blurry; the portrait is actually crisp.

This must mix up how you see things since it's reversing darks and lights that otherwise would be directly painted.

What a beautiful chiarascuro effect.
Nothing you can't do. ( except, it seems, keep warm ......)
