Inspired By . . .

I had wanted to do a spread inspired by Amedeo Modigliani but when I saw Misty Mawn's crayon portrait I was torn between the two. So this is a combination of both :) Not sure if its completely finished yet. The woman is done entirely with crayons.

I started it on crayon night and got this far.

This is my version of the Amedeo Modigliani piece Madame Kisling that I did just a little while back. I love his angles, his eyes and his rich colours.

Rose petals from a bouquet my sweetie got my when I was sick.
