This is a practice sketch for one of my chair paintings. When I saw the photo below by the artist Raphael Soyer it made me want to continue my exploration of painting in black and white (although this painting was done in color). I love the patterns and textures of the garments as they look here in black and white.
As shown in this little sketch I would like to paint patterns and textures. This painting by Soyer would definitely be one of my 'green box' paintings (I wish I had painted that).
