(Above) Gloria's Hat
15.5cm x 18cm
Mixed media (Caran d'ache Neocolour II water-soluble wax crayons, Windsor & Newton Indian ink, Daler Rowney FW acrylic ink) on 100% cotton rag, acid-free paper (weight 200g).
This painting was developed from a drawing (below) inspired by a black and white thumbnail photograph of the American silent film actress Gloria Swanson (1899-1983). I've also been thinking again about the work of the French painter Marie Laurencin ; maybe it shows.
