This is an A0 Ink Painting I did in my foundation year. I was not entirely happy with the outcome because I felt Lauryn was not recognisable and I could not correctly paint some of her features. I decided to improve the portrait by taking a photograph and editing it in Photoshop. I removed the unecessary text to make the figure the centre of attention and increase contrast. The warmer background with rich black ink gave the painting a new light.
