About "Face 2: Mischievous"

This portrait is based on a picture of a worker in an Italian monastery, published in an old edition of Du.

I love this man's pronounced smile lines and there is something open and trusting about his large dark eyes. But at the same time he seems a little apprehensive, with his head bent a little forward and some hesitation about his smile. I called him mischievous because I think he has a naughty streak. Behind the innocent look I can imagine him planning a practical joke.

The original picture was black and white, so I had fun inventing the skin tones using shades of ochre and sienna with touches of a dark phthalo green.

About Judy

Judy Backhouse

I draw and paint because it gives me joy. I am currently working on a series of portraits. Last year I completed a series of mandalas, exploring an old interest in symmetry. Mandalas are symbols of wholeness and change; as such I find them a particularly good vehicle to explore emotions. A lot of my earlier work was based on dreams.
