I’ve been having a very good art week at school. In class I’ve been playing with mixed media; watercolor, graphite and pastel and ink. Today the model didn’t show so we took turns posing for each other. When I got home I thought I’d continue to play a bit and worked on this huge pad of newsprint in charcoal and conte. This piece is 20 x 30 inches. I know I made myself a bit ‘huge’ on the lower half which is odd because I am rather small in the lower half. But I was having fun with the curves I wish I had! It is always rewarding when I produce a piece in which the process was the joy of creating it. And it does look just like me!
