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!
