I usually don’t spend much time on a given drawing. This one sure took a little while though and I feel I could even keep on going, adding more shadows. Mostly I was trying to simulate different tones and textures and have the white of her face stand out. It’s black ballpoint pen on newsprint, certainly inspired by Seurat ‘s charcoal drawings but also by this wonderful artist I just discovered this past weekend: Oda Mayumi. I am donating this drawing for the benefit this sunday at Maverix.
