This is my second drawing in what is becoming a series of Venus drawings and paintings. I started off with a different background pattern, but it didn’t fit the reflective mood of the figure and so I went with a pattern that complements the fluted column she is perched on. Next, I am going to rework this and turn it into a painting. Stay tuned!
