Small Body Guitar, Oil Pastel and Tempera Paint, 2014
An advanced drawing assignment required something other than paper to be used as the canvas. By chance an old guitar had stopped working properly a few months earlier, so it was sanded down, covered in tempera paint and drawn using oil pastel. Some highlights use the natural color of the wood, exposed by scratching the surface with a knife. The front side of the guitar would not allow the proper canvas for oil pastel.
