Mixed media in glossy watercolour paper
19 x 28 cm

Work created in  2023. Its title comes, not from the photographic reference used or the subject matter, but from the process that the portrait has undergone from its first layer, in graphitem passing through successive phases in acrylic, pastel and oil; scraping, removing and adding till its current state. The final image is reminiscent of a person emerging with integrity from some shadows.
