I enjoyed the challenge of the unusual size of this one for a portrait, following on from my lace moko series of my son Jakob from a series of photos I took about 3 years ago when he was 14. I thought I had long finished with these lace moko portraits, but I really love working in pastel monochrome, sooo another one comes out !
