Through looking at the old portraits of Mary 1 I can up with this idea and composition.
Theses are just experiments at the moment- I'm thinking about the different uses of colour, however I think the colours I'm using here aren't quite there yet
Yellow and Black- Plate printed twice on one piece of paper
Red and Brown- Plate printed twice on one piece of paper
Peel and Press Film for photo etching
I think I might experiement with chine colle for a different way to express colour, thoughts welcome
