Women's Portrait 3

Veronica Huacuja

Oil on paper

28(h) x 33(w) 0.1(d) cm

The type of paper is Fabriano, 115 pounds with a light gresso cover

'The artwork is a dramatic portrait of a female character. For this work I used an initial chonophotograph (a still video image) from the American TV Series, "The Killing" (with its great light treatment and atmosphere). I found a spectacular image–in a dim light–of Mireille Enos, the female protagonist, and I digitally distort it. After this, I used the chiaroscuro technique in a traditional technique, such as oil on paper.'
