Paper, Graphite & Oil

My most recent venture into mixed media: Still in their rough stages, graphite drawings painted with oils in paper dresses. Below this one, you can see the accompanying color study.

This one is actually nearly finished, but wet paint does not allow for happy scanning, so I can only show you what she looked like in the beginning. She is a fortune teller, and her tarot cards fluttering about her will be tiny cut-out and painted additions.

And here you see the magician - in the color study, I've blocked out (in a very scribbly way) the general shape and area for her leaping rabbit, which will be cut from paper and added on top of her dress.

Each piece measures 5x7 inches.
