I Love the Shapes Here!!
On the left is the original sketch; the upper right is a quick charcoal study I did; the lower right is my attempt to put this into paint. I love the shapes!
The painting is a layer of gesso on paper (11 x 14 inch Strathmore 80 lbs.); a layer of light violet mixed with soft gel (semi-gloss), brushed on with a size 16 flat; a layer of titanium white mixed with soft gel (semi-gloss), brushed on with a size 16 flat; an outline in titanium white and an outline in paynes grey.
