Today the finishing touches went on Rhapsody in Blue, more poses from the same model I used in Therapy. I put both drawings on heavily textured (papers, acrylic media, and tile adhesive) water color paper. I did not originally plan to use the brilliant translucent blue in the background but as I painted over the textures and colors, the blue became a rhapsody and the figures seemed to jete off the page. The faces are featureless to accentuate mysterious movements. The many shades of blue seem to fluctuate with the beat of Rhapsody in Blue. Enjoy!
