self portrait 3, aged 8

Sometimes working from a photograph gives surprises. Here I seem to have a black eye, which certainly did not form part of my childhood. A photo or image has to contain sufficient tonal contrast to work well in this 2 colour technique. I am not sharing an otherwise lovely weaving of a baby who in cloth appeared to sport a budding moustache.

Woven in white cotton and chocolate linen.
