Enhanced Ghost Print

Image

I’ve never really attempted this style or method before.
1) Sketch on site with a bic pen. Took some photo references.
2) Create monotype using sketch as guide (using a plexiglass matrix)
3) Pull prints, including the residue ghost print
4) Redraw image using sketches and references, again using a bic pen.
The thing with redrawing is that sometimes whatever spontaneity you got from the sketch or monotype gets lost. I think that happened here because this feels a little stiff, but, I think the faces are more accurate. I made a GOOD monotype once as a gift for a friend, but his nose was too big. It ruined the other 3.5 square footage of drawing.
