What in the heck am I doing this (this particular kind of thing--not my art in general) for? I mean, really, a grown woman, playing with weird paper and paint in this (apparently) random way. These are for my green project, which ends in a few days. I wish I could say the paint fumes are getting to me, but this is all water-based.
Left: 'Lady with Flowers,' c. 1478-80 by Andrea del Verrochio. Orginal in white marble. I used Sharpie poster paint pen on green paper.
Right: 'Portrait of Mlle Riviere,' c. 1806 by Ingres. Original is oil on canvas. Here I used gouaches and ink on patterned paper.
