"Purple and Yellow," 2015-2016, Ink and color pencil
Complementary colors are more prevalent in my sketchbook these days; my allergy to bright colors is fading. Leonardo da Vinci noted that "art is never finished, only abandoned," and this piece exemplifies that. She has traveled to cafes throughout Chicago, and though I love her serene expression and vine-like hair, it's time to let her rest. Perhaps she'll provide inspiration for a future piece.
