Renacimiento – giclee print

The title means rebirth, which is a good title for a Dia de los Muertos piece. I wanted this one to be much more traditional and feature more of the symbolism associated with the holiday, as opposed to my usual approach, which is just to depict a woman in catrina makeup

I also wanted to have a high contrast value scheme, as befitting the longest night of the year. This solution required a sharp rimlight to separate the figure from the ground. I also decided on a warm, rich palette to indicate crepuscular lighting


What do you think?
