Two sisters

Not quite sure that these two drawings quite work. But…they have served as little ‘drawing lessons’ especially with using colour to draw those qualities which you cannot physically see in a person. 

For this I am trying non realistic colours and quite inspired by the palettes used by Odilon Redon. Some of his art is a bit on the nightmarish side for me but alot of it I find very expressive , poetic and capture the quieter or ethereal qualities of a person or object.
I’ve using layers of oil pastels and working pencils into those layers – all with a lot of scribbling until forms…or something, takes place. A nice little journey.
