Kathy 16" x 20" Charcoal


I have been tiddling with this, today, which I started, from life, at the last Hertford Art Society life session. Kathy was sitting opposite me, and having exhausted the possibilities of the models' pose, I spent the last half an hour scribbling. Had not Kathy expressed a wish for the drawing I doubt I would have returned to it, mainly because it is on the backing cardboard of a sketch pad!

No wonder she'd like it; it's a beautiful portrait with plenty of personality. I've used the backing of a pad years ago for a collage. It's doing very nice with regards to and signs of age and deterioration.

Amazing! I think the cardboard makes an excellent mid tone! :0)
