Two Scholars

This painting is hanging in the Buchan Center of First Unitarian Church, which is kind of fun for me.  Once I week, go to Spanish class and go right by it.   

I have two figurines of Chinese Scholars which are about 15" high and are "faux ivory."  I did this drawing of them as a modified contour--mostly looking at them while I drew, and looking very little at the paper. Then I painted it with gouache and used some metallic gold highlights.  

It's fun to see my painting in a permanent display!

  1. Well, I will have to have a look at this sometime in person...Chinese scholars seem lovely subjects to install in a church!
