(Above) Jacqueline II
13.5cm x 16cm
Mixed media (Faber Castel Albrecht Durer watercolour crayons, Windsor & Newton Indian ink, Daler Rowney Calli calligraphic ink, Daler Rowney FW acrylic ink, Caran d'ache Neocolour II water-soluble wax crayons, Windsor & Newton designer gouache) on 100% cotton rag, acid free paper (200g).
Another painting developed from a study of Picasso's portraits of Jacqueline Roque (1926-1986). (See yesterday's post.) The painting is not intended to show a likeness; instead it represents a response to Picasso's paintings rather than a report on the sitter's appearance.
One of the advantages of developing paintings from my hand-drawn Sony Reader drawings (again, see yesterday's post) is the possibility of series of different versions of the same image. I haven't really explored this until now.
