Shrouded Figure Drawings – WIP’s

 

 

 

These are a few of the rough sketches I’ll be cleaning up and painting for the Art Show. These ones were done on cheap paper with extra-cheap crayola colored pencils in a coffee shop. ┬áNext time you see these, they’ll be transferred to nice watercolor paper, and they’ll be significantly more colorful.

I took an AP Art History class in high school, where we spent a few days studying the surrealist movement. One painting in particular that stood out to me was “The Lovers” by Magritte.

I loved the slightly creepy visual of these people with the cloth over their face. I had a fleeting thought that I’d like to do something with that idea – a series of elegant figures with covered faces. That was eight years ago, and the idea never quite went away. It feels good to be finally getting around to it.
