I started working on these two months ago.  I had wanted to experiment a bit with a more decorative look over the more narrative tone I usually take.  Also,  the itch to do another red and white drawing was too strong.  I didn't want to do just a preliminary drawing though.  My intent was to put just as much care into the drawing as the painting and let them each stand on their own as finished illustrations.

Both are 16" by 24".  The painting is oil on paper on board,  the drawing is colored pencil on kraft Stonehenge paper.


  1. Nice work! I like the colors and the mood, also the balance of the image.

  2. Was my favorite piece you had at Illuxcon this year. Anyone considering buying... do.

  3. Michael, what did use to do this drawing? It was sanguine and white chalk pencil?
