Working in Cheesecloth

Using the same posterised image and a hard plastic overlay - I used dura lar - I have begun to work on the same image but instead of collage I am working entirely in cheesecloth. Where the collage image focused on values, this one focuses on intensity and direction of the cheesecloth to achieve the effects. Doling the beard in the collage image was a warm up for trying the whole portrait in cheesecloth. I may not get a lot of posts done this next week as I am caregiving for my mother 'n law (she is 95) who has just come out of hospital.
