Liberty Magazine - Portrait of Jan Hus

One of my favorite clients, Bryan Gray of Genesis Design called to do a couple of portraits for the next few issues of Liberty Magazine. This is the first one, Jan Hus. In a time when you questioned the church, you took your life in your own hands. The poor fellow was burned at the stake. 

It's not very often that I stick with a limited palette but I kept leaning toward it when I was thinking about how to handle the final. Reminiscent of the red crayon drawings of DaVinci, I wanted to give a bit of that feel of he time period in the early 1400's.
