More Patterns

At Eleven by Fourteen inches, my latest drawing of a woman seated among several patterned pieces of textiles took a long time to complete. It is done with a variety of pencils and graphite with a plethora of small textural details. The background is based upon Japanese papers and tatami weaving. The draperies were entirely invented. Because these details are so busy, I left the center of the composition unpatterned as a rest for the eyes before moving to the next detailed area.
