Drawing - Black Ink And India Ink With Watercolors On Paper
Day 71 of the 100 day 2021 art challenge.
My reference for this sketch was from a painting entitled, Portrait of a Lady (in a red dress) the work of Jacopo Carucci, aka Jacopo da Pontormo, aka PONTORMO. This DRAWING/painting is my interpretation. This image evolved very quickly into a representation of front line health care workers in the battle against the pandemic virus. I wanted to portray a look of strength and perseverance, combined with pain and suffering. The red linear wallpaper like background represents death caused directly by the Covid 19 virus. Callused and numb by loss, she remains focused and strong. Do your part, wear your mask, social distance, get your vaccine. Defeat the virus.
About 2 hours 15 minutes of working with black ink, India ink, and watercolor on watercolor paper. Your comments are welcome.
