In preparation for doing a print based on the painting ‘Head of a Girl’ I did a watercolour version, just to think about composition and size.
Whilst it’s clear they don’t look the same, I don’t mind, I’m not going for exactly the same image but rather a similar feel. I didn’t like how large/dominant the girls shoulder looked in my watercolor version. So I took it out of the print version.
Here’s the print version:
It does look much more like a floating head/something either from a play or a science fiction advert. But I do like the quality of the face/the skin tone worked well, and I think the white line around the face from the mask works well.
I was happy enough with this print to move onto the next print…
