This week’s artistic greeting is a simple, smallish, figure sketch, done very roughly with pastel crayons on Paper For Pens. I did this a few weeks ago, and set it aside to use now, since I was riding the rails last week and didn’t have any time to work on any art.

This was just an attempt to do a figure study with no reference. It’s sort of a collision of Impressionism and Expressionism, only not really because it’s just a product of my imagination. Maybe we ought to call it “Illusionism,” since I was just trying to make it look real when it wasn’t.

Or it might just be considered a crude drawing of a naked lady.  It was scanned with a layer of acetate protecting the scanner bed, and a little color-correction in the computer to compensate for that.
