Surrealist nude graphite pencil drawing

Cleopatra – 22-12-18

When I saw the reference picture I was inspired to turn the model sitting in a bath with lots of foam around her,into a donkey milk bath with Cleopatra in it for the sake of my Egyptian ambition. I focused on the attractive angular body shapes and try to mimic the milk bath tonal shifts from body to mily water. The cat came later and was essential to improve the overall composition.
