I wanted to work with darker colours as a change from the brighter colour schemes I favoured. I tried to keep it toned down, but the mauves and lighter blues kept appearing; guiding my hand. But when I stepped back for a full view after a long studio session, I saw a face-like structure emerge from the shadows without a mouth pairing the muted palette with the absence of conversation.
