Oil on museum quality, archival ampersand gessobord™ panel - 5” x 7”
I had a model over yesterday and found some interesting light on the spiral staircase in the studio. The figure was almost totally in silhouette, which cried out for a sketch loaded with brushwork. The aura of white gave an ethereal quality to the figure. Had she been coming down the stairs, I might have had to give her the cubist/futurist treatment à la Marcel Duchamp. As it was she was ascending, so my realist self came through (sort of). It was fun to be loose for a change.
