Last week, I took a short road trip up to Acadia National Park in Maine with one of my brothers and a couple friends. I didn't find the time to do any painting on site there, but it gave me the push to work on more portraits, something I've been promising myself that I'd work on for a while now. I ended up taking a photo of my brother from the trip and building a different landscape around him from scratch. Like all the monoprints that I do, I find it interesting to compare the plate(left) and the final print(right), seeing which parts become more saturated and which details end up being lost.
