Woman in Red and Green; Woman in Red and Purple
Drawn this morning, from life.
Woman in Red and Green is pastel on 12"x16" black pastel paper.
Woman in Red and Purple is pastel on 12"x16" grey Ampersand board for pastels.
Last night I went to see this exhibit. Amazing stuff. Especially charming to see very early photographers working hard to emulate paintings by deliberately putting some of the image in soft focus, or by coloring the negative of a landscape to produce a lighter sky, or by various other stratagems.
