THE MIDAS TOUCH!

50/50 #12

This is another background on deli paper with acrylic.  The paper has a very different character from tissue.  I added gold for highlights on the face to bring out the drawing.  I like the simplicity of line drawing. 

I found a book of Ben Shahn's drawings today in a used book store in Palo Alto.  I think I love his work more and more.  It is inspiring me.  

Tomorrow I will be doing lots of drawings on the finished backgrounds.

Sherry, thanks for checking in every day!

Hi Susan, Deli paper is used by Ann Bagby in her collage work. It is the non-waxed squares that they wrap sandwiches in at Delicatessens. You can usually find them at warehouse type stores. It comes with about 500 sheets to a box!!!
