Great portrait, but I hear that warlocks are supposed to be male witches. From Middle English warloghe, warlowe, warloȝe, from Old English wǣrloga (“traitor, deceiver”, literally “truce-breaker”), from wǣr (“covenant, truce, pact, promise”) (from Proto-Indo-European *wēr- (“true”); compare veritable) + loga (“liar”), from lēogan (whence English lie). The ending in -ck originated in Scottish and Northern English, like the sense "male magic-user" (from the notion that such men were in league with the Devil).
Cognate with Old High German wārlogo (“truce-breaker, traitor”).
