This is my second iteration of an Ecce Homo portrait to date. Rather than a heavily layered approach to rendering the face, I attempted in this drawing to create a more ‘luminous’ and expressive portrait. I attempted to extract as much visual information from as minimal intervention on the paper surface as possible. The vast white spaces left untouched is my attempt conveying a sort of luminous mystery.
