|Bat Marian watercolor 13.5 x 10|
Thinking sculpturally is a great advantage here where a knowledge of how a light source affects the landscape of a face helps it to read three-dimensionally. Without this knowledge, which I like to call "understanding the nature of things", any work from life without a particular light source can become flattened. Likewise working with a photo source.
Marian's mask was cast from metal....quite unusual. I am pleased with this work. I feel that it captures many of the effects which I constantly pursue.
