This is my second small version of this particular portrait.
It is in acrylic, correcting fluid, silk screen ink and graphite on used glass paper. Working in pencil on sand and glass paper presents interesting challenges!
The photograph from which this portrait is taken is of Victor Alexandrovich Pavlov, just one of the faces staring out of countless mug shots of those executed in Stalin's purges.
