Prism Portrait II
Pastel on Paper - 50 x 70 cm
A series of portraits designed with fibonacci's number in mind. The pattern has been carefully designed so that is in perfect keeping with the golden ratio. In addition the precise square pattern contrasts the blurred effect of the portrait and helps reinforce the expression of the subject.
The drawing was created using a range of black and white pastels, on PastelMat paper. I choose to draw in greytone to emphasise the values, creating dramatic lighting and a deep atmosphere. The resulting image is realistic, yet expressive.
