“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They all have their exits and entrances…”
Oh the joy, the joy, of costume drama in Kyoto.
A note about paper: I drew “Costume Drama” on the smooth watermark side of Velin BFK Rives. The previous portrait of Kiyono was on the opposite side which has much more texture. You can view the previous portrait to see the difference by clicking Her First Day .
Note: I uploaded an image of the drawing on Facebook yesterday. A friend said that the hair wasn’t dark enough. I thought she might be correct so I altered it, photographed it again and put the new image on Facebook. She said that was much better but now I should put more black into the kimono. Oh no! But again I figured she was right so I altered it again and photographed it again. But then so many other parts of the drawing needed adjusting which I have just finished doing. So here are four images for your perusal – in order of alterations. ps. I’m not touching the drawing any more!
I wonder how much difference, if any, you can see? “Costume Drama” certainly turned into a drawing drama!
