London to Paris

One of the mediums I love to work with is crayons and oil pastels. I enjoy the tactile quality of the medium on a good paper and the expressive marks that can be made. The two drawings below are influenced by a recent visit to the surrealism gallery at the Tate. I was looking at a couple of paintings by Magritte and was intrigued by the limited palette in the paintings.

I decided to chose two quite iconic images and simplified the forms, colour and line in the drawings. So with a good bottle of wine and a bit of Nina Simone the results and pictured below.
