A friend of mine returned from a visit to the UK with some marvelous photos of the Elgin Marbles. I have also admired Anna Stump's images, inspired by Greek statues and drapery. So, I got inspired in turn. They are all done on very coarse water color paper, using charcoal and various forms of water based inks and paints. I think that the texture and energy that I was after show up, even in my amateur photographs.
