This is a paper painting ..... Color aid papers, beads, specialty glitter paper, origami paper, glue....now eventually I want to translate this into oil and mixed media.....I began this process with several detailed drawings.
Moving right along with my 30 portrait studies. I am learning and growing as I go along. I use from my sources of inspiration ....Sarah Sedwick........John Singer Sargeant.....what better artists to help light the way. I enjoy the challenge of age as well as ethnicity. Because I must work from a photo it is important to not draw as though it were as paint by number. It is difficult. I try very hard to look at light and shadow shapes and lay the value in as I see it....working quickly and decisively.......
