About this Artwork
Title: Sleepy Girl
Size: 10.5 x 13.75 inches
Medium: Ink, acrylic ink and watercolor on paper
Quite often my models fall asleep after several hours of posing for me. In this case I captured my friend Maggy asleep on the couch in my studio. I like to capture moments in my drawings, moments that are quick like when the model is moving or changing poses. I want to have the viewer sense that her movement is happening, that it is real and plausible. Each one of these works of art is unique. There are no two alike. Each painting and drawing tells a story and is part of a larger more complex series of paintings and drawings.
This mixed media painting is done on acid-free 140lb Fabriano Studio watercolor paper. The drawing is created in Rapidograph Ultradraw ink and Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink and Dr. Ph. Martin’s watercolor inks and Windsor & Newton watercolors. The work is signed. I provide a certificate of authenticity.
