Evanish 2

Here's another. I am really enjoying these studies it's only a shame that I have used reference photos from the internet. I wanted something that was emotive for this kind of image but didn't have my own. The two main reasons I'm enjoying these studies is the speed and the way the black and white strips away all the unnecessary distiractions like colour and just gets back to the tonal basics. A lot of this links back to the "small pieces of card" paintings in that I want the image to emerge, or in this case disappear/melt into the background. I hope to take this further and develop the idea and maybe then bring in natural elements. Who knows?
