Pencil drawing on 300 gsm smooth Arches cotton papier, oringinal drawing is 30 x 14 cm ( 12 x 5 1/2 inches) I am currently working on more similar larger venus works for this series with color and stripe variations. Thanks for looking.
Chai South I love the drapery work. The composition is great I love the juxtaposition of the straight lines against the subject. beautiful work.

Miriam Hollins Miriam Hollins I love the detailed shadowing of the body and cloth and how the artist has alternated the black and white lines on either side of Venus. Also how the beauty of Venus' face is left to the imagination and the suggestion of her provocativeness with the stance of one knee thrust forward. I just can't stop looking at it as it just keeps drawing me in. Fantastic and I can't wait to see the rest of the series.
