Reworking: Monotype Portraits

Following receipt of tutor feedback from my previous assignment Monotype Portraits, I decided not to rework the final paintings but did undertake some further research and experimentation. I particularly wanted to continue to learn about colour mixing as well as working with oil paints as I found it incredibly challenging when trying to create the monotype prints. I wanted to learn how to hold back a little more and take my time. I purposefully worked on six different paintings across a few days to help with my impatience with the oil drying time. It was really useful and engaging working on quite different paintings simultaneously and I think I’ll replicate this way of working in the future. In particular I explored the works of: Diego Velázquez, John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Genieve Figgis, Lynette Yiadom Boakye and Corinna Till.
