Waxed Margo

Study of Margo
oil and carbon on plaster under bees wax

This lovely young woman is Margo. She is a student of mine. She is a combination of carbon drawing and oils. The surface is a wood panel covered in a thin layer of plaster (sanded). I wanted a surface that I could both draw and paint on. When she was finished I brushed on a fairly thick coat of melted beeswax and burnished it with a metal canning lid.
