Seated Woman On Papyrus; Face On Papyrus; Standing Woman In Yellow; Reclining Woman In Yellow
The first two are oil pastel on papyrus.
The last two are oil pastel on handmade paper.
These are more drawings for the sketchbook project.
About these pieces:
I'm putting together some very quick, small sketches for a fun sketchbook show that the Brooklyn Art Library is hosting. If you have some interest in contributing to this, check out their website. The link is in yesterday's comments.
The model was terrific, and I loved these materials, especially the papyrus. The vertical strands of papyrus forced/shaped the images in surprising and pleasing ways.
One note: I did not prime these surfaces, so their expected lifespan is probably shorter.
