Neutral zone

I've spent this week neutralizing the greys, working on heightening the highlights and deepening the dark areas. Interesting process that involves a great deal of squinting which makes bright and dark areas stand out. Still working on really getting that neutral area in the greys.

Limited Vision

I've been working with Michael Newberry for the last few weeks and this is almost the end of my first full piece as a result of his mentorship. I'm trying to sum up my experience of being in a country where women are very much second class citizens, and where, as westerners, we are extremely limited in what we can do and see.

So here is "Limited Vision" (working title).
