This colored pencil drawing ‘Louise Brooks – 21-10-22’ is something I wanted to do for a long time. Naturally the reason was to see how colored pencil would react to Ingres paper.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 02-10-22’ follows after the (tentative) completion of my Darja Collins series.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 05-09-22’ follows up ‘The fabulous burki lippe and wassenaar trio – 02-09-22’.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 17-08-22’ follows its angular version of two days ago. Surely Walter Bird’s reference photograph was good enough to draw two versions from it.
