'elizabeth' ~ watercolors, sumi ink and oil pastels on old book page, approx. 4" x 6"

elizabeth,  quiet and strong...

you can just see in the top left corner of the pic that the page was torn from the book; otherwise all of the edges are straight.  she's been sprayed with a protective fixative.

'letitia and friends' ~ colored pencil and graphite on yupo, 4" x 4"

letitia, the leaf, and flower were drawn on a a 4" x 4" piece of white yupo, which is a polypropylene (i.e. some kind of plastic) surface normally used for watercolors.   for some reason  i can't get a sharp picture of this piece; the drawings have a fine, delicate look that can only be achieved on a surface that's extremely smooth.  unfortunately this doesn't come across in the pic, especially the crispness of the lines.  in person this is a very sweet and delicate piece.

i didn't spray it with a fixative, because for one thing i don't know what kind of fixative to use on yupo, but also because i don't think it needs it.  it was a slow process getting the color on there and i don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.  : )

SOLD
