Head Dress

12x16 collage and pastel on paper
I'm not thrilled with this photo. The true colors are more saturated and less constrasty.

Fur Collar

12x16 collage and pastel
The model for this is one of my daughters. We had a photo shoot using different accessories and hair styles. Her hair is normally curly and I wanted to get some wild hair shots, so I was a little disappointed when I realized she had straightened her hair the night before. We managed to get her hair piled up, though. This painting started off strictly as a pastel drawing. I was determined to get her features somewhat representational this time more as lesson than for any other reason. So, consequently, the whole drawing ended up be very representational - nice, but not very exciting. That's when I started tearing things up.

Something Over There

11x14 mixed media on paper
The reference for this one was an antique mug shot. It started off as a charcoal drawing, but I felt highly compelled to add color. Slowly I added paper and pastel.
