Recently I decided to draw a portrait from a picture I took on our trip to Brooklyn last summer. I remember everything about that particular moment: the hot humid air, the fragrance of burning candles, the taste of wine I was drinking and great conversations we had with Sarah. And the hat! Everyone took turns to take pictures wearing it.
The moment was priceless!
Using an unfamiliar to me medium, pastels, on watercolor paper I created this textural drawing which turned out to have almost pixelated effect.
Not quite Georges Seurat, I know...
But looking at it brings me back to that time and gives me warm and fuzzy feeling.
