I thought the tile pattern was too light and too warm, so I tried this instead:
I might even go darker, or make the background dark gray/black. I don’t have so much of the paper the stencil is made of. How did I make that paper? I think it was some kind of gouache and India ink technique. Perhaps I can find the instructions somewhere.
The model here is Ursula, an avid practitioner of Ashtanga yoga and photography.
I think that soon I’m going to have to break down and paint. It has been a while, and I rarely have time. But I can’t solve everything with pencil, marker and collage. Or can I?
It is torture, these tiny increments of time. I am yearning for uninterrupted hours….
