Throwback Thursday

When I first returned to art making, I started with pastel drawings, and I was working in my sunroom. As the weather got cooler, I needed to find something to do which was smaller and could be done inside. I decided to try to recreate the look of some older etchings, which had layers of writings. It took a while to get the process on this right, but I settled on a series of alternating layers using ink and masked ink washes. I started making these in 2009, and this drawing is from 2010. It is the cheeriest of all of them, most have a funny-sad quality about them. You can see the entire series here. I then did two additional series in the same style which can be seen here.
